England captain Joe Root treated in hospital suffering from severe dehydration


England captain Joe Root has been treated in hospital after suffering from severe dehydration, diarrhoea and vomiting.

Temperatures reached 47.3C on Sunday, the hottest day in Sydney for 79 years.

Root, 27, is on his way to the Sydney Cricket Ground before the final day of the fifth Ashes Test against Australia.

He is unlikely to immediately resume his innings on 42 not out, but is expected to bat at some point as England attempt to save the game.
