Former Kent and England batsman Rob Key has revealed he is recovering after suffering a ‘mini stroke’.
The 41-year-old, who is now a TV pundit, says he has had a “long weekend” after being treated at Kent and Canterbury Hospital.
He posted a picture of himself in a hospital bed on Instagram.
Key thanked his doctor and added: “Turns out I’ve had a mini stroke. Now got to eat food with no flavour and take pills, #triffic,”.
Key played in 15 Tests for England, five one-day internationals and one Twenty20 match, with his stand-out international performance the 221 against the West Indies in July 2004.
He was prolific on the County scene, scoring almost 20,000 first-class runs between 1998 and 2015 for Kent.
His former club tweeted a “get well soon” message on Monday.
