Cape Town - Bidvest Wits midfielder Papy Faty insists said he cannot divulge too much about his health, but insists he is doing "fine", despite collapsing on the field last week.

The Burundi international was admitted to Milpark Hospital on Tuesday after collapsing during a friendly clash against SuperSport United.

The playmaker has since been discharged, but is expected back at the hospital to undergo further tests.

"I'm fine, but I can't tell you when I will start training," he told KickOff.

"I was told by the doctors not to speak to the media so I can't tell you anything. I'm just fine."
