Casillas stable after heart attack
SPAIN’S World Cup-winning goalkeeper Iker Casillas says “everything is controlled” after he had a heart attack during training with his club Porto.
The 37-year-old is “stable” in hospital and remains under observation. Casillas, regarded as one of Real Madrid’s greatest keepers, says he had “a big scare” but added that his “strength was intact”.
A Porto statement said he “suffered an acute myocardial infarction” on Wednesday morning.
“The work session was promptly interrupted to provide assistance to the Porto goalkeeper, who is currently at the Hospital CUF Porto. Casillas is well, stable and his heart problem [is] solved,” it added. – BBC
