Sir Bobby taken ill at Ipswich match.

Recommended Posts

Former England manager Sir Bobby Robson was taken to hospital after falling ill 10 minutes into a game at his former club Ipswich Town on Saturday.


The 73-year-old became Ipswich's honorary club president this summer and was paraded in front of the supporters at Portman Road before the match.


But then he complained of feeling unwell and, after seeing the club doctor, was sent to Ipswich hospital.


In May Robson had a cancerous tumour removed from his lung.


The tumour, which the hospital said was bigger than a golf ball, was only spotted when he had an X-ray following a skiing accident.


That was the third time he has had a cancer scare - having beaten the illness twice before, in 1992 and 1995.


No details have been released about Robson's current state of health. He was accompanied to the hospital by Dr Hugh Davies, his cancer specialist, although he had been Robson's guest at the match.


A statement released by Ipswich Town read: "He was attended by the club doctor and, as a precaution, was transferred to Ipswich hospital.


"The club has no further comment to make."


Ipswich Hospital bed-site manager Sandra Churchyard told BBC Sport: "Sir Bobby Robson is in Accident and Emergency having routine tests performed and his condition is comfortable."


Asked when he might be released, the bed-site manager added: "We are not sure at the moment."



Get well soon Bobby.
