Former Italian and Juventus star Gianluca Pessotto is in a serious condition in hospital.

He fell from a window at Juventus' club headquarters, the club's press office confirmed.

"We don't know how this has happened. We'll see," Juventus chief press officer Marco Girotto told Gazzetta Dello Sport. 

"Gianluca reportedly has multiple fractures but they are not life threatening."

Pessotto is currently Juventus' team manager - a role he took up almost exactly a month ago after he quit his playing career.

The former defender spent 11 years with The Old Lady after joining the club in 1995.

During his time with the club he won six Serie A titles and the UEFA Champions League.

Former Juventus team-mates Alessandro Del Piero and Gianluca Zambrotta have flown home from the World Cup in Italy to visit Pessotto.
