Former India cricket captain and BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has been admitted in a hospital in Kolkata, news agency ANI has reported. He is currently being assessed by doctors. Other media reports claim Ganguly was admitted after feeling 'uneasiness' and chest pain.
The veteran cricketer felt chest pain while exercising at home in the morning. He was immediately admitted to the hospital, reports Anandabazar.
According to hospital sources, the 48-year-old felt dizzy while exercising in his personal gymnasium in the morning. Soon after, he was shifted to the nearest private hospital.
Now, Sourav is undergoing treatment under the supervision of doctor Saroj Mandal.
According to media reports, an angioplasty is currently been performed on the current BCCI president.
"He was not feeling well last night. However, he decided to continue his morning routine on Saturday and suddenly felt dizzy. The preliminary doctors are trying to identify the cause of this sudden blackout… it might be because of a cardiac problem or any other problem," a hospital source told indianexpress.com.
The hospital has already formed a board of specialised doctors and a cardiology specialist from SSKM Hospital has also been called for Ganguly's treatment.
In November last year, Ganguly had revealed that he had undergone as many as 22 COVID-19 tests while trying to navigate his professional commitments amid the raging pandemic.
