Published Add your comment

Daniel Sturridge remains hopeful he will be able to play for Great Britain's football team at the London Olympics after undergoing hospital tests for suspected viral meningitis.

The 22-year-old forward fell ill over the weekend with what is typically considered a mild strain of the disease. Sturridge feels confident he can recover in time to take some part in the Games.

In a statement, the England international said: "The Chelsea medical team have been closely monitoring everything and they and the doctors and nurses at St Mary's Hospital have been outstanding throughout. Thankfully, I am starting to feel a lot better and I am optimistic about being able to make the Olympics."
