Aussie legend Johns treated for seizures
Australian Rugby League legend Andrew Johns says he is being treated for seizures after he collapsed while on holiday in Sydney.
The 44-year-old, who is widely regarded as one of the best players to have ever played the game, collapsed at a coffee shop on the New South Wales North Coast, and required medical attention.
Johns, who represented Warrington in Super League, says it is not the first time he has suffered seizures and he is currently being monitored closely.
“They are seizures that have been going on a while,” Johns told the Australian Sunday Telegraph.
“I’m seeing the right doctors and they are doing all the tests and have got me on medication.”
Johns works as a TV pundit for Aussie station channel 9, covering the NRL and his brother Matty, says it could be related to tiredness.
“He could feel it coming and next thing he is waking up on the floor,” he added.
“He’s had a few seizures in the last couple of years but his last one was probably 12 months ago. He seems to think it comes on at times when he’s really tired.”
