A spokesperson for ex Newcastle United footballer Paul Gascoigne says he's "committed to his health'' after pictures emerge of him at a party in Dubai.

The Sun newspaper printed photographs of the ex-World Cup hero at a party in Dubai on its front page this morning (28th June).

Gazza's already battled drink and drug problems and has undergone stints in rehab.

His agent Matt Jones said:
"Paul Gascoigne is currently at home in Dorset after a week in Newcastle and a trip to Dubai for the England v Ukraine Euro 2012 match.

Committed to his health and wellbeing - he works out every day - he has only been drinking soft drinks and non-alcoholic cocktails.''

The newspaper said the photographs - which include one of the 45-year-old with pool cue chalk on his face - were taken at a Dubai hotel where fans were drinking.
