Former India cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu was admitted to a Delhi hospital on Tuesday thanks to a condition called ‘Acute deep vein thrombosis’ (DVT).
Sidhu who is currently in Indraprastha Apollo Hospital has suffered a clot in one of his deep veins, confirm reports from Indian Express.
A statement issued by the hospital authorities said that Sidhu’s was a ‘life threatening’ condition which could get worse if not treated in time.
The phenomena causes clots which obstruct blood vessels thus playing truant with normal blood circulation.
Also Sidhu is stable after undergoing initial treatment as per the statement.
Symptoms of DVT include swelling, pain, and tenderness, normally in the legs.
Here is Sidhu’s tweet which shows as to how he is down but not really out.
