The 1982 World Cup hero was admitted to hospital and placed on life-support on Thursday after falling ill during a meal at a hotel in Sao Paulo.

It was the third time the former Brazilian national team captain had been rushed to hospital in recent months, having first fallen ill in the summer.

He was admitted to Sao Paulo's Albert Einstein hospital on August 20 suffering from internal bleeding, and was re-admitted on September 6 with the same problem.

The hospital said Socrates was suffering from septic shock as a result of the infection.

He underwent dialysis treatment and was breathing with the help of a ventilator, but was unable to recover.

Socrates was regarded as one of the greatest players of his generation, a cultured midfielder who won 60 caps for the Brazil national side, scoring 22 goals.

He was nicknamed O Doutor - The Doctor - as he graduated as a medical student during the early years of his football career.

Most closely associated with Corinthians, his only spell abroad was playing for Fiorentina for the 1984-85 season, though he also played 12 minutes for West Yorkshire team Garforth Town in 2004.

Socrates' most memorable moment came in the 1982 World Cup where the elegant midfielder scored one of the greatest goals in the tournament's history against Italy
