It is understood the 61-year-old was put into an induced coma by doctors.

The ex-Chelsea and Manchester United player was raced to hospital following the scare at his home in Cobham, on Thursday.

'He's not in a good state at all, I'm afraid. He's critically ill. The cardiac arrest led to a fall which has meant he's had to be put in an induced coma.

Ray Wilkins is reportedly left fighting for his life after suffering a cardiac arrest.

"I hope everyone can respect the family's wishes over privacy at this very hard time for us".

After his playing career, Wilkins managed Jordan, the Queen's Park Rangers and Fulham in addition to other assistant coaching jobs. In recent years, he has worked as a pundit - regularly appearing on talkSPORT radio and on Sky Sports News.
