Iker Casillas has been discharged from the hospital after he suffered heart attack during training five days ago.

Okay Nigeria had reported that the FC Porto goalkeeper was rushed to the hospital after he collapsed during a training session.

Casillas disclosed in a statement on Monday that he has been released from the hospital as he thanks fans for their support through the hard times.

The statement read:

“A few days ago I went through a difficult situation, something that can happen at any moment of life, but fortunately I’m fine.”

“I am grateful and feel that I am very lucky.”

“Thank you to all who cared, for I felt very dear and cherished. I can only get out of this situation with a smile. For me, it’s exciting to see so many people here listening to me.

“I thank all those who helped me and who allowed the effect of the infarction not to be so serious because the FC Porto medical team responded immediately. I was treated very well in the hospital too.

“Thank you for the thousands of messages of support and affection I received. I feel much better and now it will be a rest for a couple of weeks or a couple of months, I do not know, but the most important thing is to be here.

“Thank you all. I do not know what the future will be, but the most important thing is to be here, to be able to speak and transmit to everyone as I am and how I feel. Thank you very much and see you soon.”
