I hope he gets better soon. Matsuda was a good player. Sadly his career is over - I cant see doctors recommending a heart attack victim to return to pro sport.

Based on the few facts in this article, I'm just hoping he survives.

Really sad news. It sounds as if he's on mechanical life support. I wonder what caused it. Some athletes get cardiomegaly or arrhythmia.

Indeed very sad. Wishing him a speedy recovery.

"Situation is grim" is how the prognosis is being translated. I hope he survives and regains consciousness.

Heat stroke is suspected.
