Soccer Legend Hislop Opens Up About Terrifying On-Air Collapse


In a shocking incident during the pre-season friendly match between Real Madrid and AC Milan, former Premier League goalkeeper and soccer icon Shaka Hislop collapsed live on TV.

Hislop, 54, was standing by the pitch at the Rose Bowl when he suddenly tumbled out of sight, leaving ESPN viewers in utter shock.



Thankfully, immediate medical attention was provided to Hislop, and he was thoroughly checked over on the spot. After the incident, the ex-Portsmouth legend broke his silence and took to his social media accounts to update his concerned fans about his health.

Addressing the incident, Hislop said, “Well, that was awkward. What a 24 hours this has been. Listen, every so often life gives you a moment to pause, and this was mine. There’s so much I have to be thankful for – my wife, kids, family, loved ones, and friends.”

Expressing his gratitude for the support he received, Hislop continued, “People I’ve shared a space with over the years and have lost touch with for whatever reason and have reached out directly or indirectly. Thank you. My response now has to be to seek out the best medical opinion that I can get and listen to what my doctors have to say.”
