West Ham co-chairman David Gold taken to hospital with pneumonia

West Ham co-chairman David Gold has been taken to hospital with pneumonia, according to his daughter Jaqueline.

Gold, who together with fellow businessman David Sullivan took a controlling share of the club three years ago, fell ill following their FA Cup game at Upton Park against Manchester United on Saturday. Daughter Jaqueline tweeted:

"Have taken my father into hospital.

"I think he's learnt a very harsh lesson not to go to football with bronchitis. Now has pneumonia and being assessed."

She added that her father was on 'very strong antibiotics.' In March 2011, 76-year-old Gold needed hospital treatment for cholangitis and septicemia.
