David Ginola returns home following quadruple heart bypass surgery

David Ginola confirms that he has returned home after undergoing quadruple heart bypass surgery 10 days ago.

David Ginola has confirmed that he has returned home 10 days after undergoing quadruple heart bypass surgery in Monaco.

The former Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur player collapsed during a charity football match on the French Riviera on May 19.

There were conflicting reports over the severity of Ginola's condition, but it was later revealed that he underwent surgery at Monaco Heart Centre.

According to The Mirror, after collapsing on the pitch, CPR was performed on Ginola before medics used a defibrillator, which needed to be administered four times before the ex-footballer's heartbeat returned.

Today, Ginola tweeted: "Home at last! Thanks so much to all of you for your incredible messages of love and affection! They do help my recovery."

The operation is believed to have taken five hours.
