The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly was today taken to the Apollo hospital in after he complained of chest pain. Recently, the former Indian captain had undergone angioplasty after suffering a mild heart attack and was discharged on 7 January. The 48-year-old cricket icon had to undergo a stent insertion but was declared stable and clinically fit by doctors.

“I am absolutely fine,” Ganguly said before boarding his private vehicle to return home, adding, “I thank all the doctors, the nurses and everybody in the hospital for treating me.”

Ganguly reportedly suffered a blackout after his workout at his residence after which he was taken to the Woodlands Hospital in Kolkata.

During his stay in the hospital, the doctors diagnosed Ganguly with three blocked coronary arteries after which they inserted a stent in one of the arteries to remove the blockage. A nine-member medical team was formed to look after him and he unwent treatment in the hospital for five days.

MD and CEO of Woodlands Hospital Dr Rupali Basu had said that the former captain will be monitored at home on a daily basis after being discharged.

The 48-year-old was expected for the next course of procedures or medical intervention after about two or three weeks, further said Dr Basu while informing the reporters about the health of Ganguly.

Cardiologist Dr Devi Shetty met the medical team of nine doctors attending to Ganguly and then a further course of action was decided by the hospital. Dr Shetty said that the heart of Ganguly is now as strong as it was when the former India skipper was 20-years-old.

Ganguly’s admission in hospital triggered a massive round of visits and good wishes online and offline. West Bengal Chief Minister and BCCI Secretary Jay Shah were some of those who came to see him, whereas numerous members of India’s Cricketing fraternity as well as fans sent in their messages.
