Youngster Josh Koroma, who has flourished since Edinburgh took over on November 29 2017, added: "Speedy recovery gaffer.

"You've done so much for me, prayers go out to you and your family."

Orient's former Professional Development Phase Lead Coach, Pete Gill, commented: "Wishing Justin a speedy recovery. Get well soon gaffer."

Edinburgh's former team-mate at Spurs, Micky Hazard, said: "I want to send best wishes to my good friend Justin Edinburgh.
