England legend Paul Gascoigne was reportedly spotted drinking a pint of beer ahead of his scheduled stint in a rehab facility in Phoenix, Arizona.
The 45-year-old, who has had previous problems with alcohol and drugs, arrived with a friend at the airport in the US following an 11-hour flight from Britain and made his way to the bar.
The ex-Tottenham Hotspur midfielder sat in a chair in the Chelsea's Kitchen bar and restaurant drinking a pint of beer after his friend left momentarily.
"Paul was shaking so much and looked desperately sick," a witness told The Sun. "It was very upsetting seeing him in the bar. His mate left him alone for one minute and he managed to order a beer.
"When his friend came back he took the pint and scooped him up and out of the bar. Let's hope he gets the treatment he needs."
