David Ginola has seemingly moved to refute the suggestion that he has been left in an unconscious condition following a cardiac arrest.
However, a message on the 49-year-old's official Twitter account revealed that Ginola had been playing in a football match, while also indicating that he had regained consciousness.
The Frenchman even made a joke about the 2022 World Cup being played in Qatar.
"Footy match in the midday sun, not very clever. Now having some tests done. Whoever voted for a World Cup in Qatar in the summer?," he tweeted.
