Paul Gascoigne, the former Lazio midfielder, admitted that he ‘headbutted and punched’ the dead body of his dad.
The 53-year-old gave a ‘The anything goes podcast’ interview, revealing that he headbutted the dead body of his dad.
“When it was just me and him in the hospital bed and he passed away, I jumped on the bed and punched him,” he said.
“I headbutted and punched him and got my own back from when I was younger.
“Then I just laid there and hugged him for 45 minutes.
“Saturdays are when I miss him. But he was so dry. He’d talk to anyone but he wouldn’t talk to me,” he continued.
“I loved to take him around the world with me when I played. At the moment I’m alright, but I’ll be thinking of it, the good times I had, I probably had more good times than bad times.
“I must have bought my dad about 80 cars and 18 boats and houses.”
Between 1992 and 1995, the former England international spent three seasons at Lazio before transferring to Glasgow Rangers.
