Former Bolton Wanderers footballer Fabrice Muamba has offered his support to England cricketer James Taylor, who has been forced to retire due to a heart condition.
The batsman announced the news on Tuesday, revealing that he has been diagnosed with Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Arrhythmia (ARVC).
The condition, which was detected after Taylor visited a specialist, is similar to the one that caused Muamba to collapse on the pitch during a game in 2012.
After hearing the news, Muamba contacted Taylor on Twitter, saying: "@jamestaylor20 having life is a great option.Retirement is inevitable but for some of us it's just earlier than expected. Enjoy life."
Taylor made seven Test appearances for England and played in 27 one-day internationals.
