"Pavel was running last night and his heart stopped he was like that for 20 minutes then rushed to hospital he is an induced coma until wed (Wednesday)."

Newcastle were quick to offer a message of support, tweeting: "Our best wishes go to @PavelSrnicekUK, who has been taken to hospital today. Get well soon, Pav. #NUFC".
