Ex-England hooker Brian Moore has received strong support from the world of rugby after suffering a second heart scare in the space of 15 months.
The broadcaster and columnist was scheduled to have a triple bypass operation in May 2017 following a heart attack a month earlier.
Out tomorrow- thanks again to the unfailing professionalism of the staff at St George’s Tooting for guiding me through my second coronary episode.

But after he underwent tests there was a change of plan and he is set to undergo stenting instead.
Moore has now spent 48 hours in St George’s Hospital, and was hoping to get the all clear to head home on Wednesday.
However, he later went on to social media to say: “Out tomorrow – thanks again to the unfailing professionalism of the staff at St George’s Tooting for guiding me through my second coronary episode.”
Here’s what the rugby world has been saying to Moore:
Good luck mate
