Pakistan's former captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has denied that he suffered a heart attack, he also revealed that his cardiac issues were detected during a health check-up that he underwent due to an upset stomach.

The former cricketer said on his YouTube channel, that he was overwhelmed to see the support from fans but stated that he didn't suffer a heart attack.

The 51-year-old was admitted to a private hospital on Monday after facing breathing problem.

"I saw reports saying I had suffered a heart attack. I did not. I went to my doctor for a routine check-up, who said they wanted to conduct an angiography. During angiography, they noted an artery of mine was blocked, so they inserted stents to alleviate that problem. It was successful and easy, and I came back home after just 12 hours at the hospital. I feel fine," he said.

Inzamam also disclosed that he had gone to hospital owing to an "upset stomach".

"I went to the doctor because I felt a very slight bit of discomfort. It wasn't even close to the heart area, but the stomach. Had I delayed getting it checked out, doctors said the heart could have been damaged," he said.

"I want to thank everyone in Pakistan and around the world for praying for my health. I want to thank the Pakistan people, and cricketers from Pakistan and around the world who sent their good wishes," he added.
