Tom Lockyer, the captain of Luton Town, has been released from the hospital after experiencing a cardiac arrest during their game against Bournemouth on Saturday. The match was canceled due to this unfortunate event. Lockyer, who is 29 years old, underwent a procedure to have an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator installed on Tuesday and was discharged from the hospital the following day.
Luton Town, in an official statement on their website, expressed their appreciation for Lockyer’s recuperation and revealed that he has commenced his rehabilitation at his residence. Luton Town expressed their gratitude to Bournemouth, their fans, club representatives, and midfielder Philip Billing for their support during the incident. They recognize the vital contribution of their medical personnel and the established procedures that enabled Lockyer to have a chance of recovering.
The happenings of the previous weekend deeply impacted everyone involved, and Luton Town, in partnership with Sporting Chance and the Premier League, are offering assistance to those affected by the distressing situation. The club has sought guidance from esteemed heart specialists and a team of diverse consultants to ensure Lockyer receives the highest level of care possible. The tests conducted during this week have shown that the problem Lockyer faced on Saturday was not the same as the atrial fibrillation he had in May. Lockyer, his family, and the club are grateful for the immense support and caring messages received from the football community.
Lockyer’s guidance will persist from the sidelines, where his bravery will serve as a motivation for his teammates, coworkers, and fans. The Premier League has officially announced that the interrupted game will be rescheduled and played completely at a later time.
