Posted: Updated:

Paul Gascoigne's life is in danger after he started drinking again says his agent, Terry Baker.

The 45-year-old footballing legend, who has been sectioned twice because of his alcoholism, was videoed at a charity event on Thursday showing signs of severe alcohol misuse.

In the clip, obtained by the Sun, Gascoigne is shaking uncontrollably , barely able to hold a microphone and slurs his words.


Gazza has 57 caps for England

Speaking to BBC Radio Five, Baker said: "He won't thank me for saying but he needs to immediately get help.

"Whatever's happened to him in the five or six weeks since I saw him before Christmas, he is not as well as he has been.

"He's been absolutely fine, he really has, and now he isn't. But I think he knows that.

"His life is always in danger because he is an alcoholic. Maybe no-one can save him - I don't know. I really don't know."
