Pal’’s blonde wife saves semi-conscious GazzaSeptember 15th, 2008 - 1:48 pm ICT by ANI
London, Sept.15 (ANI): A semi-conscious former England football star Paul Gascoigne was literally saved by a blonde in Portugal after another drug overdose bout.
Sally Digby, 40, the wife of a friend of Gazza, rushed him to a hospital and stayed as medics pumped his stomach, reports The Sun.
Gazza, 41, gulped pills during a bender after fleeing a rehab centre, and was believed to be staying with Sarah and her husband Ian an old friend who runs an Algarve restaurant.
A friend of the couple said: Without Sally and Ian he might not have pulled through. Shes become Gazzas rock. Theyve become close, but its nothing more than a friendship.
Last week, Gazzas ex-wife Sheryl, 42, and daughter Bianca, 21, had begged him to quit his binge after jetting to Portugal only to be told: F*** off and leave me to die.
A Brit who saw him slumped in a chair at the five-star Don Pedro Golf Hotel in Vilamoura told how he asked if he was all right. (ANI)
