Ossie Ardiles 'fine' after car accident

Tottenham legends Ossie Ardiles and Ricky Villa are 'fine' after they were involved in a car accident while in Argentina to film ESPN's 30 for 30 documentary.

Ossie Ardiles believes Spurs could mount a serious title challenge
Ossie Ardiles was both a player and a manager at the club.

According to Mercopress, a number of people were injured on Monday night and were flown to hospital by helicopter. The two former Tottenham stars -- who starred for Argentina at the 1978 World Cup -- are cult heroes at the club having won the FA Cup in 1981.

However they missed the success in 1982 because of the Falklands War -- Ardiles left the club on loan, while Villa refused to play in the final.

After the accident, Ardiles received stitches in his head, but it was confirmed by his daughter Aimee on Twitter that he was recovering well.

A spokesperson from the Falkland Islands government later confirmed to Press Association Sport the details of the incident, with no further updates yet available from the hospital on Ardiles.

"I can confirm that there was a road traffic accident involving seven passengers last night in the Islands. Thankfully, due to the fast action of our rescue services and the British forces, they were successfully evacuated to hospital in Stanley, where their injuries were assessed,'' she said.

"Three members of the party remained in hospital overnight for observations and further treatment, and the remaining four were released from hospital following treatment for minor injuries."

Tottenham also released a statement on Twitter wishing the pair a quick recovery.
