UEFA president Michel Platini is recovering in hospital after fainting in a Johannesburg restaurant on Friday night.
Platini, who had been suffering from flu-like symptoms, was taken to hospital for tests, none of which showed up any significant problems. Early reports suggested Platini had suffered a heart attack, but they proved unfounded.
"Michel Platini, UEFA President, fainted (Friday) evening after feeling unwell following flu symptoms in the past days" read a UEFA statement on Friday night. "He was taken to a hospital in Johannesburg for some tests. Contrary to some media reports, no signs of any heart-related problems have been found."
