Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says his “heart is absolutely fine” following medical examinations in London after being diagnosed with cardiac lesions at the Africa Cup of Nations.
The 32-year-old recently returned to London from the Africa Cup of Nations after being diagnosed with heart lesions following a positive coronavirus test.
Aubameyang posted on Instagram: “I came back to London to do some additional checks, and I’m very happy to say that my heart is absolutely fine and I’m completely healthy!!
“Really appreciate all the messages over the last few days and I’m already back at it.”
The Gunners said last week they had been in touch with Aubameyang and were confident his condition was not serious.
Asked about Aubameyang’s situation on Wednesday, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said at a news conference: “He’s in London and now he’s going through some examinations because we haven’t had any clarity from the Gabon national team about the reasons why he came back.
“Obviously it’s our obligation to make sure that medically he is safe and in good condition. Historically, with everything we’ve done with the player, he has never had that issue.”
