Tottenham are offering support to ailing former star Paul Gascoigne after it was reported he had been placed on an emergency three-day detox.
Reports claimed that Gazza, 47, was sectioned under the Mental Health Act early on Friday morning after another drinking binge.
A spokesman for Spurs said: “We are aware of the situation with Paul and continue to offer our support.”
Spurs playmaker Erik Lamela did this…
… and then Twitter's jaw dropped as one:
lamelas goal. I remember trying it at training at Southampton and ended up tearing my medial. Know your strengths. Head it and kick it far
Late seeing #Lamela goal!! Worth the wait!! Wowsers that's special!!
Erik Lamela's goal is a landmark goal, wonderful, a goal which will be shown over and over. Amazing. So, stop going on about Harry Kane!
Still in disbelief about Lamela's goal. It should be illegal.
Everywhere you go, always take Lamela with you.

Not everyone thought the goal was the best thing since sliced bread, though…
Lamela's goal is not better than Bergkamp's goal vs Newcastle #Fact!
