London - Former England, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea striker Jimmy Greaves is in intensive care in hospital after suffering a stroke, according to the BBC.
The 75-year-old, who scored a club record 266 goals in 379 appearances for Tottenham in the 1960s, was taken ill on Sunday.
"His wife Irene and four children have asked for privacy during what is a worrying time for the family," a statement on the BBC's website said on Monday.
Greaves, who established himself as a prolific goal-scorer at Chelsea, scored 44 goals in 57 appearances for England.
