January 31, 2021: Indian cricket board Chief Sourav Ganguly was discharged from hospital on January 31 morning, three days after he underwent a fresh round of angioplasty to clear clogged coronary arteries, officials said.



The 48-year-old cricket legend was hospitalised on January 27 for the second time in a month due to his cardiac condition.



On January 28, two more stents were implanted during the surgery conducted by a team of doctors, including noted cardiologist Dr. Devi Shetty and Dr. Ashwin Mehta.



"Mr. Ganguly is doing fine and his heart is as strong as a normal person. He had an uneventful recovery and we are hopeful that within the next couple of days, he will be able to return to normal life," a senior doctor of the private hospital said.



The former India captain is required to follow a strict routine and needs to be on medication for a few months, he added.



The batting great suffered a mild heart attack earlier this month and was diagnosed with Triple Vessel Disease. He had undergone an angioplasty procedure during which a stent was inserted into one of the blocked arteries.
