Bronny James, son of NBA superstar LeBron James, was hospitalised after going into cardiac arrest while participating in a practice session.

A family spokesman said medical staff treated the 18-year-old James on site and he was transported to a hospital, where he was in stable condition after leaving the intensive care unit.

“We ask for respect and privacy for the James family and we will update media when there is more information,” the spokesman said.

"LeBron and Savannah wish to publicly send their deepest thanks and appreciation to the USC medical and athletic staff for their incredible work and dedication to the safety of their athletes.”

Bronny James announced in May that he would play college basketball for the Trojans - the University of Southen California.

He is an incoming freshman and was one of the top high school prospects in the country.
