The former Birmingham City and England midfielder Trevor Francis was in hospital last night, after suffering a suspected heart attack.
A hospital spokeswoman said: "Trevor Francis has been admitted to the Birmingham Heartlands Hospital." Birmingham released a statement via Twitter which said: "We'd like to send our wishes to Trevor Francis. Get well soon."
Francis, 57, became the first £1m footballer when he moved from Birmingham to Nottingham Forest in 1979. He won 57 caps for England and has managed QPR, Sheffield Wednesday, Birmingham and Crystal Palace.
