Tobi Alabi

The Heart4More Foundation can confirm that founder Tobi Alabi is currently hospitalised following a collapse on Sunday morning and cardiologists at St Thomas’ Hospital have advised a pacemaker to be fitted.

Tobi initially had a heart monitor implanted in his chest on his 20th birthday following his collapse on October 15, 2013 for Metropolitan Police against Molesey in a friendly.

The heart monitor’s reading showed that Tobi’s heart stopped for a total of 17 seconds over a 60 second period.

Tobi collapsed Sunday morning and was rushed to Darent Valley Hospital in Dartford by his family and was subsequently transferred to St Thomas’ in Westminster on Monday morning.

He has since been admitted and will remain in hospital until a pacemaker is fitted, which could be next week at the earliest.

Tobi would like to place on record his thanks to those who have wished him well and a speedy recovery.

“Id like to thank you all for your continued support in what has been a very difficult time for me, but as you all know I remain positive.

“God is watching over me and by His grace the operation will be successful. Keep me in your prayers and most importantly stay tuned because Heart4More have got a lot in the pipeline in the coming months.”

The Heart4More Foundation have released this news to remind supporters of the Foundation as well as the football community how serious the issue of heart conditions is.

This further incident has reinforced our belief that a change in the game is necessary but also the general public must also take note to get themselves screened to avoid fatalities happening.

Please remember that 12 young people, aged 14-35, die every week in the UK due to an undiagnosed heart condition.
