Sourav Ganguly, former Indian skipper and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president has undergone angioplasty and is stable now, experts in the medical team said. Ganguly was admitted to a Kolkata hospital this afternoon after complaints of chest pain.

The doctor said that Ganguly was immediately moved to the hospital and all necessary medical treatments were provided. "He underwent angiography and angioplasty. He is now stable. There are multiple issues for cardiac attack. He will be able to join his daily activities soon," said Mondal, who also heads the cardiology department of the state-run SSKM Hospital.

Sources said that there are two more blockages in his heart for which he will be treated. A stent insertion has been done as 90 per cent blockage was found in one of his arteries. He will be monitored for the next 48 hours.

Ganguly suffered a sudden blackout following mild chest pain during a workout session at his Behala residence this morning. He called up his family doctor who advised him to get admitted to a hospital immediately. He was moved to Kolkata's Woodlands Hospital at around 1 pm.

West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee tweeted: "Sad to hear that Sourav Ganguly suffered a mild cardiac arrest and has been admitted to hospital." Banerjee also wished him a speedy and full recovery. "My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family," the CM said.

Sources close to Ganguly said that an ECG test was conducted upon him after he was rushed to the hospital. He is now stable and out of danger. A troponin-T test was also performed upon the BCCI chief at the hospital to determine the cause of his sudden chest pain.

A medical team, led by state-run SSKM Hospital's cardiology department head Saroj Mondal, is looking after Ganguly's health check-ups at the hospital. He was shifted to an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) bed from the emergency observation ward, sources said.

West Bengal urban development and municipal affairs minister Firhad Hakim and minister Arup Biswas went to the hospital to enquire about Ganguly's health. West Bengal governor Jagdeep Dhankhar also paid a visit to the hospital along with his wife Sudesh Dhankhar.

"I am expressing my best wishes for the speedy recovery of Sourav Ganguly. He lives in our hearts and we all have great regard for him. He has performed for the country in a manner that makes us proud. The moment I got the news I got in touch with the hospital authorities and they told me about his health ailment. He is being well looked after," the Governor told media persons at Raj Bhavan.
