Legend Best 'enters final hours'

Best's condition worsened early on Wednesday
Ex-Manchester United star George Best is spending his final hours in hospital after doctors said his deteriorating condition was irreversible.
Best, 59, could not recover from the internal bleeding that developed last night, Professor Roger Williams said.

Just before 1300 GMT, he said the former Northern Ireland international would not survive another 24 hours.

Family and friends have visited Best in London's Cromwell Hospital, where he has been treated for a lung infection.

Many Americans might not know him, but he is among the top soccer players the world has ever produced. Some would say he was the best player EVER and whats more he came from my city. Unfortunately he got addicted to the booze and girls and wasted his talents away. The booze has finally caught up on him.

Rest in Peace with the football gods Georgie!! You shall always be remembered!

The news coverage of this man with his self inflicted illness, is excessive.
30% of News time currently in the UK seems dedicated towards him.
He kicked a ball around well 40 years ago.... So what ! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The most talented British sportsman that has ever lived! Rooney could only dream of filling his boots.
