Concerns have been mounting over large numbers of young, healthy athletes recently collapsing mid-game with sudden heart problems.
Calls are now growing for a full official investigation into the circumstances surrounding the mysterious collapses.
Reports are continuing to emerge of sports starts suffering chest pains and cardiac arrests on the field.
Former England soccer star Matt Le Tissier is now urging authorities to launch an investigation into the spate of athletes collapsing with sudden heart problems.
Le Tissier insists that he just wants more information.
Manchester United’s Victor Lindelof, Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski, and Martin Terrier of French club Rennes were all recently forced to stop mid-game due to severe heart and breathing problems.
“It’s been very concerning for me watching the sport that I love and I played for 17 years,” Le Tissier told GB News on Friday.
“In all that time that I played I never once saw any footballer leave the pitch because of heart issues.
“Now I’m sorry, but if anybody can look at what’s happening now in the world of sport and say it’s normal for all of these people to be having heart issues, in football matches, cricket matches, basketball matches, any sport you wish, these people, the amount of people that are suffering is going through the roof,” he warned.’
