Former Coventry City youngster Danny Sturridge will be assessed as to his fitness to see if he can take up a place in the Team GB Olympic football squad.

The Chelsea player had been in a London hospital suffering from viral meningitis and will now miss the GB training camp in Spain and will be tested as to his fitness.

"Doctors had a look at him last week, visited him and basically he will stay here," Team GB mens football team boss and former Coventry City defender Stuart Pearce told Press Association Sport.

"He won't come to Spain when we do our prep there and all being well we'll pick him up when we fly back into the Olympic Village Monday week. We will assess him at that time.

"The good thing is we probably have a couple of weeks to make a decision on his fitness.

"If he is fully fit, he will stay with us. If we think there are any doubts in any shape or form, we'll call someone else to replace him. July 25 is that latest we can make that decision.
