Daniel Sturridge will be assessed early next week to see whether he is able to represent Team GB at London 2012, manager Stuart Pearce has revealed.

The 22-year-old Chelsea forward fell ill last weekend with viral meningitis - typically considered to be a mild strain of the disease. Earlier this week Sturridge revealed he is confident of recovering in time for the Games, although Pearce will not be taking him on next week's pre-Games camp in Spain.

"Doctors had a look at him last week, visited him and basically he will stay here," Pearce told Press Association Sport.
