Mike Tyson is helping other athletes and "lifting spirits"

Mike Tyson has offered to provide counselling and support to troubled Paul Gascoigne when he tours the UK.

The 41-year-old said: "I know all about Gazza and I feel I can help him. A lot of top sportsmen have suffered in their private lives, including me, and that is why I want to help.

"I still see him as a superstar and would like to meet him if he feels up for it."

'On a downer'

He has already met England striker, and boxing fan, Wayne Rooney several times.

Their first meeting three years ago was a boost for the young footballer at a time when he was under fire for his aggressive style of play.

Tyson said: "Back in 2005, Wayne Rooney was on a downer and I met him and lifted his spirits.

"I am sure I can do the same for Paul Gascoigne."


I like Mike, but...what kind of motivational talks would be give?
