- Aguero suffered a heart scare during a recent live stream
- The former Manchester City star was forced into retirement in 2021 due to a heart condition
- In a video doing rounds online, Aguero suddenly appears to stop talking before putting his hand on his chest
Sergio Aguero suffered a heart scare during a live Twitch stream in an incident that was caught on video, Wednesday night.
The incident came 17 months after he was forced to call it quits on a lucrative football career on medical grounds.
Since his early retirement aged only 33 in December 2021, Aguero has been a regular on Twitch, where he is hosted by various big names.
In the latest incident, Aguero was accompanied by one of the biggest streamers in Spain Ibai Llanos as per a video shared by Marca.

As he was speaking, the Manchester City legend suddenly paused before putting his hand on his chest as if to indicate his heart was causing problems.
Llanos took note of this and, according to The Sun, asked Aguero, “What’s up man?”
Aguero paused for a moment before responding 'I think... I think... I just had a mini-arrhythmia.'
Llanos, who was now clearly worried for the retired striker, asked whether they should call a doctor, to which Aguero replied:
'No, no. Because I have a chip and the famous chip will detect it and send a signal.' Before joking “Imagine if I end up dying”.
As of today, there is no immediate update on Aguero’s current situation since the Twitch stream.
After his first heart incident which took place in a game involving Barcelona and Alaves, Aguero has since had an implant installed to monitor his heart.
In February 2022, the Argentine was on video showing off the implant, which he joked was installed by his girlfriend Sophie Calzetti.
The device was fitted during a cardiac catheterisation in Barcelona.
Aguero’s take on Arsenal
Sports Brief also reported on Aguero’s warning to Arsenal as the Gunners go for a first Premier League title since 2004.
According to Aguero, the race is likely to go down the wire, with the former striker insisting that City are fully aware it is not over until it is over.
As a player, Aguero won five Premier League titles with Manchester City.
