Vasco da Gama coach Ricardo Gomes suffers stroke during match v Flamengo

The images from Brazil of Vasco da Gama coach Ricardo Gomes suffering a stroke on the touchline on Sunday night, immediately brings to mind the death of legendary Scottish manager Jock Stein, who suffered a heart attack and died in 1985 during a World Cup play-off match between Wales and Scotland.
The latest news from Brazil is that Gomes is in a stable condition after suffering a heart attack during the 0-0 draw between Vasco and Flamengo on Sunday.
Vasco’s team doctor Clovis Munhoz told reporters after the 46-year-old Ricardo had surgery: “The initial treatment is a surgical treatment to relieve the hemorrhaging, so there’s a minimum possible suffering of the cerebral tissue.”
Most striking from the footage is how Gomes attempted to keep his stroke low key by calling the medical team over and seemingly whispering that he wasn’t feeling well.
Although difficult to make out on the video, it also appears that the former Brazil defender and captain made his own way into the ambulance during the second half of the Vasco-Flamengo encounter.

I hope that Ricardo get through this easily. I think that everybody agrees with me – he’s an example of a real gentleman in this soccer world.
Go Gomes!
