Former England soccer manager Sir Bobby Robson was released from hospital last night, two days after being taken ill at a football match.

Sir Bobby, 73, complained of feeling unwell while watching Ipswich Town's home game against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

He was taken to Ipswich Hospital for tests and left yesterday morning.

"Sir Bobby left the hospital to return home at about 10.30 this morning," said a hospital spokeswoman.

Sir Bobby had previously been treated for colon cancer and a malignant melanoma on his face.

He was taken ill shortly after being introduced to the Ipswich crowd.

Sir Bobby played for England, Fulham and West Bromwich Albion during a successful career.

He went on to make his name as Ipswich manager in the 1970s before managing England, Barcelona and Newcastle United.

He led England to the semi-final of the 1990 World Cup in Italy and now works as an adviser to the Republic of Ireland international side.
