30-Year-Old Soccer Star Suffers Sudden Heart Attack Mid-Game

In shocking scenes, a soccer star has collapsed suddenly on the field after suffering a heart attack mid-game.

The player was 30-year-old Ahmed Refaat, an Egyptian soccer star and former international team-mate of Mohamed Salah.

Refaat suffered a massive heart attack during a match with Al Ittihad Alexandria Club.

The player’s unexpected collapse led to a dire medical emergency.

The incident occurred just minutes before the final whistle.

Refaat, who was playing for Modern Future FC, collapsed without warning, prompting immediate medical intervention.

Despite the swift response from the on-site medical team, the player’s heartbeat ceased for an agonizing duration of over an hour, Goal reported.

The match was immediately suspended as the stricken star was hurried to Zamzam Hospital for urgent care.

Modern Future FC expressed their deep concern, according to Kingfut.

“Ahmed Refaat’s heart stopped for more than an hour, despite all resuscitation attempts by the medical staff at Zamzam Hospital near the stadium before his heart rate improved gradually.

“However, his condition is still medically unstable, which prevents his transfer.

“Unless his health condition stabilizes, the player will continue to receive treatment and undergo the necessary tests.”

“The club is following the situation on a momentary basis from the hospital, and everyone will be updated immediately,” the team said.

“We would like to call on the media to respect the player’s personal life as well as his health and ask the Egyptian football fans to pray for Ahmed Refaat to be safe and sound as soon as possible.”

Nine days into his hospital stay, Amr Osman, a medical supervisor and cardiology consultant for the Modern Future FC, revealed that Refaat’s heart condition is rare and baffling.

Even seasoned medical experts said they cannot understand how a young athlete in prime physical; condition could suffer such heart failure, according to Lovin Cairo.

“Refaat was resuscitated for two full hours, and every time he was resuscitated, the player’s heartbeat accelerated, returning to point zero, and we had to begin the resuscitation process again,” Osman said.

“The heart’s condition returned to point zero once more approximately every five minutes.”


Refaat’s kidneys and lungs are under close observation.

Doctors are expressing particular concern for his lung function.

However, the full extent of the impact remains uncertain.

Walid Dabas, President of Future F.C., conveyed in a phone interview that despite the severity of his condition, Refaat has shown some signs of awareness.

He is currently supported by respiratory devices to aid his breathing.
