Paul “Gazza” Gascoigne Recovers Playing Computer Games
Troubled former England soccer star legend Paul "Gazza" Gascoigne has said that he recovered physically and mentally by playing computer games against his son while admitted to a psychiatric hospital in Durham.

Gazza, 40, was released on Friday after three weeks at the secure Middleton St. George Hospital. He was sectioned after a two-month drink and drug binge.

He revealed to The Sun that playing on his Nintendo Wii against ten-year-old Regan over the Internet helped his recovery.

He said: "It's good fun. I've been playing Regan at ten-pin bowling on the Wii games. He challenged me."

Before being admitted to Middleton St George Hospital, Co Durham, the star had spent weeks locked in a Newcastle hotel playing on his Wii.

Gascoigne was last night relaxing at dad John's home in Dunston, Gateshead.

John, 62, said of his son's release: "It's good to have him back. He's sleeping a lot - he needs a lot of rest to help him recover."
