Gordon Ramsay has left hospital following his clash with former England star Teddy Sheringham, during Sunday night’s Soccer Aid match.

The Scottish chef, who used to play for Glasgow Rangers, went down during a challenge with Teddy, and appeared to be in a great deal of pain as he was stretchered off the pitch holding an oxygen mask.

Thankfully, he was later released from hospital and is now recovering at home.

He Tweeted: "Thx 4 all the messages. Out of hospital after receiving amazing care from medics at ground & hospital. Bit sore but fine Gx"

His spokesperson told the Daily Mirror: "Gordon was taken to hospital after injuring his back during the game. He was released after receiving treatment and although he's in pain today, there shouldn't be any long term damage."

The final score didn’t do anything to ease Gordon’s pain, as his side, the Rest of the World, lost 3-1 to England.

It was a fantastic night of TV, with a host of stars coming out to support the cause and take part in the match, which was organised by Robbie Williams.

Kasabian’s Serge was awarded man of the match, after scoring a spectacular goal.

Players on the England team included comedians John Bishop and Paddy McGuinness, singers Olly Murs and Mark Owen, with Robbie as team captain. They were joined by former footballers including Graeme Le Saux, Martin Keown, Kevin Phillips, David Seaman, Teddy Sheringham and Des Walker. Sam Allardyce managed the team.

Playing for the Rest of the World, along with Gordon, were actor Gerard Butler, former boxer Joe Calzaghe and Hollywood superstars Will Ferrell, Woody Harrelson, James McAvoy, Ed Norton and Mike Myers. Star of stage and screen Michael Sheen was captain. They were joined by football legends Hernan Crespo, Roy Keane, Clarence Seedorf, Jaap Stam, Edwin Van Der Sar and Freddie Ljungberg. Former Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish took charge of the team.

The event, the fourth of its kind, was a huge success, raising more than £6.5 million for UNICEF.
