Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says that he is praying for former Blues skipper Ray Wilkins, who was placed in an induced coma earlier this week.

Antonio Conte has said that his "prayers are with" Ray Wilkins as the ex-Chelsea captain fights for his life following a heart attack.

Wilkins was placed in an induced coma earlier this week, less than a year on from undergoing double heart bypass surgery.

The 61-year-old has received a number of well wishes from former and current players, the latest coming from Conte ahead of Chelsea's meeting with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, which the Blues went on to lose 3-1.

"We are very close to Ray and his family," he is quoted as saying by Chelsea's official account. "Ray is a legend in the history of this club and, for sure, our prayers are with him."

A spokesman for St George's Hospital said on Sunday evening that Wilkins's condition had not changed.
