Sky Sports News reporting that he has been hospitalised after suffering a suspected heart attack in training. :-(

Wishing him a speedy recovery. 

A true legend of the game.

  • Awful news, only 37 as well
  • Read that he's in a stable condition so hopefully not serious

    Certainly one of the greatest Goalkeepers of recent years
  • There are loads of heart conditions that remain undetected - I would hope most footballers get thorough screening.

    I hope he gets better soon.
  • Reports say he had an operation and will be out for the rest of the season

    Surely if he has had a heart operation it would be to dangerous to play again

    Surely that depends on the condition and severity?
  • Dazzler is right.  Depends on the damage to the heart.  A friend of mine is in his early 50s and is still bike racing after a heart attack a couple of years ago.
  • Not to mention he's a Goalkeeper

    Not saying they're fitness levels are lower than an outfield player but guess they have to cover a lot less ground over a game at a lot slower speed (running)
  • Looks like the end of his career as he appears to have had a stent done.
  • Has announced his Retirement from football

    Sensible decision but no way for one of the greatest Goalkeepers in recent years to bow out

    Yes, a terrible way for someone who played more than a 1000 games to bow out, though happily at least he seems to have made a decent recovery

    Aye, the best in the world at various points and the skipper for Spain teams that were some of the best to ever play the game. 

    Just glad he seems to be doing okay and has his health. His career had been in decline for a while, basically since Mourinho got ahold of him, but still, as you say, not the way you want to bow out.
