"When it comes to professional footballers, problems of the heart are often to do with their latest tryst. But lately, they have taken a much more serious nature.
Last week, 27-year-old Mitchell Cole died of heart disease, a year after he was forced to retire from professional soccer in the UK because of a known heart condition. This follows a report last week that another British footballer, Radwan Hamed, who was only 17 when he had a heart attack on the pitch, will be suing his former club, Tottenham Hotspur, over the brain damage that he suffered as a result."
