RFU Statement: England Rugby boss hospitalised

Rugby Football Union chief executive Bill Sweeney is being treated in hospital for a pulmonary embolism.

An RFU statement said he “is expected to make a full recovery and return to work”.

“He is in good spirits and is being well looked after,” the union added.

Sweeney will recover “for the next few weeks” with the RFU executive team taking charge during his absence.

“Bill would like to convey his strongest possible appreciation for the NHS who perform such incredible work,” the RFU statement concluded.

What is a pulmonary embolism?

A pulmonary embolism (PE) is a blood clot that develops in a blood vessel in the body (often in the leg). It then travels to a lung artery where it suddenly blocks blood flow.
