His condition has been reported as stable.

On Monday, Santokh collapsed and lost consciousness while at home in Setapak.

"A day earlier, my husband was in great health and even managed to conduct a coaching programme," she told reporters here today.

Meanwhile, Football Association of Selangor (FAS) general secretary Datuk Hamidin Amin who visited Santokh today, said his contributions to Malaysian soccer during the 1970s were invaluable.

He said FAS would help in any way it could to facilitate Santokh's speedy recovery, and urged fans to pray for their idol.
