Former England captain Ray Wilkins is ‘critically ill’ after cardiac arrest

The former Chelsea and England captain Ray Wilkins is “critically ill” after suffering a cardiac arrest.

His wife told the Daily Mirror that “he’s in hospital, he’s had a cardiac arrest and is in intensive care.”

“The cardiac arrest led to a fall which has meant he’s had to be put in an induced coma. It’s very, very bad.”

Wilkins has a long association with Chelsea after spending six years with them as a player; and then later as an assistant manager and caretaker manager.

He played for twelve sides in his career – winning 84 England caps along the way. Since hanging up his playing boots, Wilkins has been a pundit on Sky Sports and talkSPORT.
