Former Newcastle player David Ginola 'recovering' after quadruple heart bypass

Former Newcastle player David Ginola declared himself "fine" on Friday after regaining consciousness following a quadruple heart bypass operation overnight - at least that's what was tweeted from his social media account.

The tweet said he had "never slept better" after collapsing while playing football on Thursday.

He was taken to the Monaco Cardio-Thoracic Centre, where he was operated on by Professor Gilles Dreyfus.

Professor Dreyfus, quoted in local newspaper Var-Matin, clarified Ginola had not suffered a heart attack but said the coronary arteries supplying blood to the heart had been affected.

"He arrived in a catastrophic state.

"He was unconscious and did not remember anything.

"But it is going well. I have been able to talk to him. He does not show any neurological after-effects.

"He did not have a heart attack but he had very complicated coronary lesions which required us to perform a quadruple bypass. We began the operation at 1900 and finished between 0100 and 0130 (local time, from 1800 to between midnight and 0030 BST)"
