Foot (F): no cardiac anomaly detected after Arsenal player Maanum's illness

Norwegian midfielder Frida Maanum, victim of a worrying illness on Sunday during the match, underwent "thorough examinations" which did not reveal "any obvious cardiac cause", her club Arsenal announced on Thursday.

The 24-year-old collapsed in added time of the League Cup final against Chelsea on Sunday, a scene which shocked the public and her partners. She was evacuated on a stretcher, with a medical mask on her face, by the emergency services present at the stadium. Her club then claimed that she was “conscious”, able to speak and “in a stable condition”, without giving more precise news.

Since then, Maanum has undergone “thorough examinations” to try to explain the origin of his discomfort, the London club said in a press release on Thursday. “The test results have been reviewed by two renowned cardiologists and no obvious cardiac cause has been detected to date,” it said.

The player was equipped with “a monitoring device to record her cardiac function” and she will be able to “follow a gradual return to training protocol”, detailed the London club. After a full week of supervision, a decision will be made regarding a possible resumption of football.
