Eusebio back into hospital
Portuguese football legend Eusebio has been re-admitted to hospital for severe neck pain just days after being released from a two-week stay, according to a spokesperson for the hospital.
The 69-year-old Mozambique-born superstar, who won the Ballon d'Or in 1965 and inspired Portugal to third place in the 1966 World Cup, had spent two weeks in hospital last month suffering from pneumonia.
But he was re-admitted late Tuesday after showing what the hospital said were "symptons of severe neck pain".
Eusebio - nicknamed the 'Black Panther' - was signed aged 19 by Benfica, and they went on to win the 1962 European Cup while he also scored 41 goals in 64 international appearances.
