West Ham United have issued a fresh press release with regard to the condition of Glenn Roeder, who remains hospitalised after collapsing yesterday.
The statement - released tonight (Tuesday) - confirms rumours suggesting that the problem was brain related, as opposed to a heart condition as previously intimated.
"Glenn has undergone further investigations and scans throughout the day and we are still awaiting the results of these," said the statement.
"However, we can confirm that there has been a blockage of a minor blood vessel in his brain.
"Doctors are continuing to carry out tests and will be in a position to make a fuller diagnosis once these are completed."
The statement lends weight to rumours which had been circulating earlier in the day which suggested Roeder had suffered either a stroke or brain haemorrhage.
Meanwhile, a report in tonight's Evening Standard tells how Roeder's house was attacked the night prior to his falling ill.
Someone is thought to have thrown a bottle at an upstairs window in his house, in an incident that was reported to the police.
None of the Roeder family - all present in the house at the time - are thought to have been injured by the missile.
