“Plenty of work to do and surgery to have but I’m slowly on the road to recovery.”
Peter Dale, better known as ‘Tubes’ from Soccer AM, has announced that he is “slowly on the road to recovery” after suffering what he described as a “very unexpected major heart attack”.
In an Instagram post on Thursday, Tubes revealed that he suffered the heart attack on Sunday and praised the efforts of St. Peters Hospital in Chertsey in Surrey and the ambulance crew, without whom, he said, “I may not have been writing this message now”.
On Sunday I suffered a very unexpected major heart attack. Can’t thank the surgeons and staff at St. Peters hospital Chertsey and the Ambulance crew enough. If it wasn’t for your quick and efficient work I may not have been writing this message now. Thank you ?. Plenty of work to do and surgery to have but I’m slowly on the road to recovery. Big love, yours in foooooooootball. Tubes x
Tubes is one of the well-known figures on the popular football show Soccer AM, known for segments such as ‘one question and one question only’ and some famous interviews with footballers and celebrities over the years.
The crew from the programme wished him well on Twitter on Friday morning; fingers crossed he’ll be back on our screens in the near future.
We’ve all been rocked this week as our man @TubesSoccerAM had a heart scare on Sunday. Thankfully he’s now on the road to recovery and will be bossing a midfield near you very soon.
Sending all our love your way fella ❤ pic.twitter.com/Na4iKjDe7w
