Sergio Aguero, a former Manchester City legend, experienced a heart scare during a live streaming session with Spanish star Ibai.
The former Manchester City and Barcelona, who had to retired from playing at the young age of 33 owing to a cardiac issues, stopped speaking and put his palm to his chest.
Ibai was captured on camera asking the Argentine, “What’s wrong?” as Aguero went silent and hung his head down in the video.
Before responding with obvious disbelief, the former Argentina international appeared to gasp shortly for air and he said: “Oh, I believe… I believe I recently experienced a mild arrhythmia.”
The City legend spoke out while what looked to be a monitor on his phone was being checked.
Ibai, who was stunned, said: “Right now?”, in an obvious state of concern as Aguero checked his pulse before assuring his pal, “No”. He confirmed while continuing to check his phone: “I have a chip and the famous chip is going to detect the situation. It would send a signal because perhaps it’s just something that’s in my head.”
At that point, Sergio Aguero complained the battery on his phone was running out but added, “It was very strange”, however, he failed to explain his feelings any further.
He also went on to say: “I definitely felt something out of the normal circuit”. Aguero however still managed to share a dark humour saying, “Imagine I end up dying”, which made the host, Ibai, to ask, “Shall we finish off this live anyway?”, And that brought about a smile on his friend’s face.
A message popped up in Spanish on the screen as the streaming session came to an end: “They waited for a message from the doctor and the reply didn’t arrive before they finished their live streaming session.”
The Spanish internet celebrity Ibai Llanos called Aguero by his nickname “Kun” then added: “Take care Kun, we love you.”
Aguero issued an update afterwards, he said: “Don’t worry. It was nothing really. Everything’s okay now. The doctors have told me everything’s alright and there’s no problem. You can therefore rest easy.”
He added, whilst laughing out loud: “I’m still here.”
