Barcelona striker Aguero speaks for first time since heart scare

Barcelona striker Sergio Aguero has been seen in public for the first time since his heart scare.

Aguero has made his first public appearance following the heart complications which he suffered at the start of November, and reassured his fans over the state of his health.

The cardiac arrhythmia which he suffered during Barcelona's 1-1 draw with Alaves has cast serious doubt over the striker's career, and he is set to be out of action at least until the start of February.

He appeared on his Twitch channel on Friday for the first time since the incident occurred, and gave little away regarding to his future in the game.

"I am not going to speak a lot about it," said former Manchester City striker Aguero.

"You already know that I am doing well and I wanted to say thank you yo everyone for the support that I have received on social media, in all formats.

"Many people have written to me, so I want to say thank you to them. I am not going to speak a lot about this topic, only that I am going to enjoy the 'Kru' match [his eSports team] and nothing else. Thank you for supporting me."

The 33-year-old is set to appear in a joint press conference with his club to reveal the plan of action regarding his career, although a date for the press conference has yet to be set.
