Former Wales manager John Toshack is no longer in intensive care after being admitted to hospital in Spain having contracted Covid-19.

The 72-year-old was hospitalised in February, reportedly suffering from pneumonia brought on by coronavirus.

Toshack, who managed Real Madrid twice, Real Sociedad and Swansea City, is now breathing without the aid of a ventilator.

He has also been able to speak to members of his family.

A former Liverpool striker, he also played for both Cardiff City and Swansea.

Toshack scored 13 times in 40 games for Wales before twice becoming the national team manager, in 1994 and from 2004 to 2010.

In all he has taken charge of more than a dozen clubs around the world and famously took Swansea from the old Division Four to the First Division.

His most recent job was as manager of Persian Gulf Pro League side Tractor, which he left in September 2018 after just three months in charge.
