BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has been admitted to a Kolkata’s Woodlands Multispeciality hospital after complaining of chest pain after working out in the gym on Saturday morning, PTI reported.

The former India captain is currently “stable” and “responding well” according to BCCI secretary Jay Shah.

MD and CEO of the hospital, Dr Rupali Basu said that Ganguly had a family history of heart disease, and was undergoing a minor angioplasty.

“When he came to the hospital at 1pm, his pulse was 70/min, BP 130/80 mm of Hg and other clinical parameters were within normal limits,” the hospital statement said. “He has received loading doses of dual anti platelets and statin and is undergoing primary angioplasty now,” Basu said in an official statement from the hospital.

“His ECG showed hyper acute ST segment elevation in inferior leads and lateral leads. Echo showed mild inferior wall hypokynaesia  with preserved overall left ventricular function. He is stable haemodynamically. He has received loading doses of dual anti platelets and statin and is undergoing primary angioplasty now.”

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had earlier tweeted to say that Ganguly suffered a “mild cardiac arrest” and wished him a speedy recovery. BCCI secretary Jay Shah and West Bengal governor Jagdeep Dhankar also wished the former captain well, revealing that he was in a stable condition.

“Sad to hear that @SGanguly99 suffered a mild cardiac arrest and has been admitted to hospital,” she tweeted. “Wishing him a speedy and full recovery. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family!” she added.
