Enock Mwepu, a former midfielder for Brighton, is reportedly recovering in a hospital after having a health scare.
According to GOAL, the former Premier League player is being treated for a heart problem in his own country.
According to reports, he drove himself to the hospital after experiencing some difficulty.
The Zambian Observer reported earlier today that Mwepu was taken to the University Teaching Hospital on Sunday morning after what was believed to be a heart attack.
The event allegedly occurred when Mwepu was driving toward Kabangwe, a town outside of Lusaka, the capital of Zambia, according to the Zambian media.
In fact, his car is said to have been seen swerving on a busy street.
However, a source told GOAL that Mwepu did not have a heart attack and did not pass out while driving as had been previously claimed; rather, he had a cardiac issue.
He reportedly felt good enough to communicate with doctors in the UK.
Mwepu, who was a standout in the middle for Brighton last season, was forced to retire in October at the age of just 24 due to a hereditary cardiac issue.
