Associated Foreign Press

MANCHESTER — Boxer Ricky Hatton has been admitted to hospital here suffering from stomach cramps and vomiting, according to press reports on Thursday.

The 30-year-old former light-welterweight world champion complained of feeling unwell on Monday and was taken to Tameside General Hospital on Wednesday morning.

His agent Paul Speak told the Daily Express: “He has been feeling unwell for a couple of days and overnight he could not sleep.

“His girlfriend Jennifer took him to hospital at about 8am as he was vomiting and suffering stomach cramps.

“Initially we thought it was just a bug and he would get over it, but it was definitely getting worse.

“He will be in for tests for a few days to determine exactly what Ricky has caught, but we can confirm it is definitely not swine flu.”
