LEGENDARY footballer commentator John Motson believes the demise of Paul Gascoigne is the "reflection of a life spent in the spotlight."
The man regarded by many as the voice of the beautiful game told the Buzz : "He was the most talented English player that I have seen. It is very sad that he has found it very difficult to adjust to life away from football.
"I think it is a reflection of fame and spending his whole life in the spotlight."
Motson's comments come as former England midfielder Gazza was admitted to a treatment centre in the United States following a shambolic public appeareance in front of a crowd of 500 at an event at the Park Inn Hotel in Northampton last week.
