Great Britain's Olympic gold medal-winning hockey coach Danny Kerry is recovering after suffering a heart attack.
The King's Lynn-raised coach was admitted to hospital after feeling unwell while with England at the World League semi-final in South Africa.
Mr Kerry, who is also the England coach, will miss the defence of the European title and is not expected to return until September.
He said: 'I would like to give my huge thanks and debt of gratitude to Dr Ramjee and the wonderful staff at Milpark for the exceptional care I received whilst in hospital.
I would also like to convey how proud I am of how both players and staff continued through the tournament in such a professional manner, particularly during the Saturday I was admitted.
