Man City legend Sergio Aguero suffers heart scare in the middle of a live Twitch stream

Sergio Aguero, a former Manchester City icon, experienced a frightening incident while streaming on Twitch on Wednesday. He had a heart arrhythmia while broadcasting live.

In October 2021, during Barcelona’s match against Alaves, the Argentine footballer suffered chest pains that led to a diagnosis of the issue by medical professionals.

Aguero spent ten years at the Etihad Stadium before joining Barcelona, where he established himself as one of the top scorers in the history of the Premier League.

Sergio Aguero is undoubtedly one of the greatest goalscorers in the history of the Premier League, having enjoyed a prolific career with Manchester City. With 184 goals in just 275 appearances for the club, he is currently ranked fifth on the league’s all-time goalscorer list.

Aguero’s incredible scoring record is made even more impressive by the fact that he achieved it in just 10 seasons with City. During that time, he helped the club win four Premier League titles, one FA Cup, and five League Cups.

However, it is perhaps Aguero’s last-gasp goal against Queens Park Rangers on the final day of the 2011-12 season that will be most fondly remembered by City fans. With the score tied at 2-2 and time running out, Aguero picked up the ball on the edge of the area and rifled a low shot into the bottom corner to secure a dramatic 3-2 win and the club’s first-ever Premier League trophy. The goal instantly became one of the most iconic moments in the history of English football, and Aguero’s place in City folklore was secured.

Last summer, City revealed a statue of Aguero outside the Etihad as a way to demonstrate their gratitude for his contributions. Aguero’s transfer to Barcelona was aimed at giving him the opportunity to team up with his Argentina teammate and good friend, Lionel Messi. Unfortunately, the two never got the chance to play together while in Catalonia.

In less than a month after Aguero’s arrival, Messi left Barcelona and joined Paris Saint-Germain due to the club’s poor financial condition. Aguero had only been a Barcelona player for four months and had played in six matches when his heart condition was detected. Shortly after, he had to retire from football due to the need for a pacemaker. He announced this during an emotional press conference held at Camp Nou in December of the same year.

The athlete cried as he announced his retirement based on medical advice. Many important people from his professional life, including Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, were present for the announcement.

Aguero’s scary moment while live on Twitch

After retiring, Aguero has been frequently using Twitch, where he shares his opinions on football with his 4.7 million followers on the popular live-streaming website. On Wednesday, he was accompanied by the famous Spanish streamer Ibai Llanos in his studio.

Llanos quickly realized that something was amiss when Aguero paused their conversation briefly and placed his hand on his chest.

Per a translation from the Daily Mail, he asked Aguero: “What’s up, man?”

“I think… I think… I just had a mini-arrhythmia,” replied Aguero.

Llanos understandably asked Aguero if he needed medical help. Aguero responded by shaking his finger and waiting for the arrhythmia to subside before explaining to the Spanish streamer how his pacemaker functioned.

“No, no. Because I have a chip and the famous chip will detect it and send a signal [to my heart].”

Fortunately, Aguero was able to finish his stream without any further complications and appeared to be fine after the incident. You can watch the moment when Llanos became worried about Aguero’s health in the video below.
