 Soccer Star Gazza Says 'He Died Thrice In Rehab'
Fallen-from-grace, retired English footballer Paul Gascoigne a.k.a. Gazza revealed that he had 'died' no less than three times in rehab before medics could revive him.

Gascoigne, 41, was admitted for alcohol abuse to the Sporting Chance clinic founded by his former England teammate Tony Adams, and during his stay there, his heart stopped beating thrice and each time the doctors had to resuscitate him.

"My heart failed a few times and three times they revived me," the Sun quoted him as telling Sky News.

Gazza, who is now four months sober and beating the depression, admitted to having knocked back four bottles of whisky a day before moving on to 30 cans of Special Brew lager. He was sectioned three times under the Mental Health Act last year, after playing his Nintendo Wii 24 hours a day for six weeks and drinking bottle after bottle of white wine and gin.
