Gazza’s one day Costa break

FORMER England ace Paul Gascoigne has enjoyed a whistle-stop holiday in the Costa del Sol.

The Geordie midfielder spent less than 24 hours in Malaga after realising he had unwittingly snubbed a charity fundraiser for blind baby, Faith Dodds, in Newcastle.

The ex-footballer – famous for his World Cup tears – showed his sensitive side once again and turned his back on the glitzy town’s sun, sea and sand.

He hastily arrived back in his native city, bearing 500 pounds in cash and a specially chosen braille card to surprise seven-month-old Faith’s family.

“I was just amazed. He had gone to loads of effort, it is not easy to find braille cards. And then he gave us all this cash to go towards Faith’s treatment.”

“I was just amazed. He had gone to loads of effort, it is not easy to find braille cards. And then he gave us all this cash to go towards Faith’s treatment,” said her father, Michael.

Gascoigne originally flew to Malaga citing the fact that he needed a “break as he was having a bad time”.
