The 57-year-old who played at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, Germany, has been warded at the intensive care unit after he collapsed and lost consciousness at 11 am on Monday at his home in Setapak.

His wife, Taljit Kaur, believes that the former international could have been struck by a viral infection as doctors had yet to determine the source of his ailment. She said Santokh did not have any health problems.

"A day earlier, my husband was in great health and even managed to conduct a coaching programme," she told reporters here Friday.

Meanwhile, Football Association of Selangor (FAS) general secretary Datuk Hamidin Amin who visited Santokh Friday, said his contributions to Malaysian soccer during the 1970s were invaluable.

He told Bernama, that FAS would help in any way it could to facilitate Santokh's speedy recovery, and urged fans to pray for their idol.
