EWN reports that a family member of Neil Tovey has confirmed that the 52-year-old former South African soccer captain is recovering from three heart attacks in ICU in a Durban hospital.
Reports emerged on Tuesday evening that the former Bafana Bafana defender and captain of the 1996 AFCON winning national team, Neil Tovey, had been hospitalised after suffering three heart attacks on Tuesday morning.
According to African Football, Tovey had the first heart attack while playing squash with a friend. Tovey's friend then quickly rushed the former Bafana Bafana skipper to the hospital where, under the care of his medical team, Tovey suffered two further heart attacks.
A family member has since confirmed that Tovey had indeed suffered three heart attacks and that two of the attacks occurred after the former international defender had been admitted to hospital.
Tovey is reportedly "doing well" and is expected to be moved out of the ICU ward "in the next day or so".
According to reports on Tuesday, Tovey had to be repeatedly resuscitated after the attacks.
Tovey won over 50 caps for the national side and was as a star for Kaizer Chiefs from 1990-1999.
He later coached numerous PSL sides after retiring from the playing arena, including Mamelodi Sundowns, AmaZulu and Black Aces.
This news comes after reports earlier this week that John "Shoes" Moshoeu is fighting for his life in Johannesburg hospital.
