The Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas was admitted on Wednesday in a hospital in Oporto after suffering an acute myocardial infarction during training, although he is stable and his heart problem was resolved.

Porto, the Portuguese club where he has played since 2015, said in a statement that the player is admitted to the Oporto CUF Hospital, but "he is fine, stable and with the heart problem resolved."

The 37-year-old Spanish goalkeeper suffered a heart attack during the morning training session of the Portuguese team at the PortoGaia Sports Training and Training Center, which had to be interrupted to provide assistance.

The "dragons" prepared the game that they will play on Saturday against the Desportivo das Aves of the Portuguese League, a competition in which they fight to be champions and from which three days remain. Oporto also has the Portuguese Cup in play, whose final will be played against Sporting de Portugal.

Casillas, who turns 38 on May 20, lives his fourth season at Oporto, with which he has won a Liga and a Supercopa de Portugal, after playing from 1999 to 2015 in the first team of Real Madrid.
