Support for former Lions ace Alabi
Millwall Football Club would like to extend our very best wishes to former player Tobi Alabi, who is currently in St Thomas' Hospital waiting to have a pacemaker fitted after collapsing on Sunday.
Tobi, founder of The Heart4More Foundation initially had a heart monitor implanted in his chest on his 20th birthday following his collapse last October when he was playing for Metropolitan Police against Molesey in a friendly.
The heart monitor’s reading showed that Tobi's heart stopped for a total of 17 seconds over a 60 second period.
Tobi collapsed Sunday morning and was rushed to Darent Valley Hospital in Dartford by his family and was subsequently transferred to St Thomas' in Westminster on Monday morning.
He has since been admitted and will remain in hospital until a pacemaker is fitted, which could be next week at the earliest.
"I'd like to thank you all for your continued support in what has been a very difficult time for me, but as you all know I remain positive," said Tobi.
"God is watching over me and by His grace the operation will be successful. Keep me in your prayers and most importantly stay tuned because Heart4More have got a lot in the pipeline in the coming months."
Tobi was at The Den just last month, promoting the fantastic work he does for Heart4More as the Foundation raised £7,000 to screen 100 young people before a football match.
Everyone at Millwall FC would like to extend our very best wishes to Tobi for a full recovery and look forward to welcoming back to The Den in the near future.
