Former England footballer Jimmy Greaves has made a full recovery after suffering a stroke, it has emerged.

The 72-year-old former Tottenham star spent two nights in hospital and underwent neck surgery after falling ill at his home in Chelmsford, Essex. He has since been discharged and says he is feeling as fit as ever.

"I had a mini-stroke but just weeks later I'm honestly feeling better than I have in years - I'm as fit as a butcher's dog," Greaves told The People.
