Published Add your comment

Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has confirmed Daniel Sturridge is suffering from viral meningitis but is hopeful he will be fit to take his part in Team GB's Olympic squad.

The 22-year-old forward fell ill over the weekend with what is typically considered a mild strain of the disease. Di Matteo, speaking at his club's Cobham training complex, confirmed Sturridge was still in hospital but suggested he could still play a part in the London Games providing his recovery goes well.

"Daniel has viral meningitis, but I spoke to him and he feels better now," said Di Matteo.
