Hockey Legend Balbir Singh Sr Tests Covid-19 Negative but Condition Critical

CHANDIGARH: Hockey legend Balbir Singh Sr, who was hospitalised on Friday evening with complaints of pneumonia, has tested negative for coronavirus but his condition is reportedly “critical”.

Balbir Singh Sr was admitted to Fortis hospital at Mohali from his residence in Sector 36 in Chandigarh.

“He continues to remain on a ventilator,” Singh’s grandson was quoted as saying.

Balbir Singh still holds the record of most goals scored by an individual in the men’s hockey final of the Olympics.

The 96-year-old legendary hockey player was conferred with the Padma Shri in 1957 and was also the manager of India’s only World Cup-winning team in 1975.

In January last year, Balbir Singh spent over 100 days in the hospital and underwent treatment for bronchial pneumonia.
