Ex-Argentina forward Tévez admitted to hospital for chest pains

Former Manchester United and Manchester City forward Carlos Tévez is in satisfactory condition in a hospital in Argentina after being admitted for chest pains on Tuesday, according to Independiente, the club he manages.

Tévez, 40, went into hospital in Buenos Aires where tests were carried out, the club said, with no immediate concerns being raised by the results.

Independiente said Tévez would remain in hospital overnight “as a precaution” and complete another set of routine checks on Wednesday.
