BEST WAKES FROM COMA LATEST: British soccer legend George Best has woken from the coma which threatened to claim his life. The former Manchester United ace, as famous for his alcohol addiction as his soccer skills, has spent almost one month being treated for a kidney infection in the intensive care unit of London's Cromwell Hospital. Best's manager PHIL HUGHES says, "He opened his eyes and squeezed my hand when I spoke to him. There's no doubt he is still seriously ill but he is on the mend." In other news:
BECKHAM'S CAR STOLENEnglish soccer ace DAVID BECKHAM's high security BMW has been stolen in Madrid, Spain. The Real Madrid player's $180,000 (£100,000) armour-plated X5 was stolen from the La Moraleja region of the Spanish capital, while in the care of one of Beckham's employees. Unfortunately Beckham's assistant had forgotten to switching on the vehicle's tracking system, so police are still looking for the car.
A friend tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "He is gutted. David loves this car."
