Sick internet game – when will Gazza die?

It may be a grave situation, but for many punters it's a dead cert - members of an internet fan forum are taking bets on when England football legend Paul Gascoigne is going to die.

Gascoigne, known to millions as Gazza, has had very public issues with alcohol and mental health problems since he quit the game.

The game appeared on the 'Huddleboard' website after the latest lurid story involving Gazza, who once took centre stage at World Cup 90 and Euro 96, reported that he had drunk a bottle of whiskey for breakfast.

The British 'Daily Star' newspaper published some of the bets being taken:
