Former Liverpool goalkeeper Ray Clemence has been admitted to hospital.

Clemence began to feel unwell on Friday, when he missed training and also Saturday's friendly win over world champions Spain.

"Ray Clemence has been unwell while with England and is having tests in hospital," said an FA statement.

Clemence, 63, played 665 times for the Reds, missing just six league matches in 11 years at the club, and earned 61 caps for England.

"At this time Ray would like to thank everyone for the kind messages he's received and the FA would like to request privacy for his family," the statement added.
