‘Full recovery’: Former Aussie keeper released from hospital

Campbell, who played two ODIs for Australia and has maintained a significant place in the game as a coach in Hong Kong and now the Netherlands national team, was placed in an induced coma at Royal Stoke University Hospital last month after falling ill during a family holiday to the UK.The incident came in the wake of the deaths of Australian cricket legends Shane Warne and Rod Marsh.But follow-up tests have shown no damage to the heart and doctors have categorically excluded the possibility of a heart attack as the cause of the cardiac arrest. Campbell, 50, is expected him to make a full recovery and re-join the Dutch team sooner rather than later. After leaving hospital, Campbell, who also played for Hong Kong during the 2016 T20 World Cup at the age of 44 and has coached the Netherlands since April 2017, paid tribute to the hospital staff “I want to take this opportunity to thank the amazing doctors and nurses at the Royal Stoke Hospital critical care unit for their incredible professionalism, kindness and compassion,“ Campbell said in a statement.“I also want to thank Beci Bassett, a parent at the adventure playground in Cheshire who immediately administered CPR. Her courage and quick intervention quite simply saved my life.“My wife Leontina was at my bedside hour after hour and kept our families informed of my progress. She dealt bravely with every development thrown her way. LT, I thank you and love you.”The Netherlands are set to play England in a series of games next month.
