Cardiac arrest player wins damages action


LONDON: A former Tottenham player who suffered catastrophic brain damage when he had a cardiac arrest while representing the club’s youth team won his multimillion-pound High Court damages action on Monday. Radwan Hamed, now 26, had signed on as a professional with Tottenham just three days before his collapse, aged 17, during a youth team game in Belgium in August 2006. Hamed’s father, Raymon, claimed his son’s injuries resulted from the negligence of Dr Peter Mills, who screened Radwan, and of the club—through Dr. Charlotte Cowie and Dr Mark Curtin, specialist sports physicians it employed.
