Former Real Madrid goalkeeper and current Porto player Iker Casillas suffered a heart attack in training on Wednesday. The keeper is currently in a stable condition in hospital after a successful operation that fixed the problem.

After Barcelona’s 3-0 win over Liverpool midweek, the star of the match Lionel Messi came out with a nice message of support for the former Real Madrid man.

“I want to take this opportunity to send a big huge to Iker Casillas and hope that he gets well soon.”

It was certainly a nice gesture from the Barcelona skipper after a very successful day at the office. Shows the genuine character of someone when in a great moment for themselves they take the chance to wish well upon someone else.
