Lord Alan Sugar Has An Urgent Heart Operation In The US To Cure Artillery Blocks

Lord Alan Sugar

The Apprentice chief, 69, was fitted with a tube after tests revealed one of his arteries had narrowed.

Doctors performed the procedure last month during the business mogul’s winter break in Florida.

The BBC1 star was fit enough to play a game of tennis with ex-Wimbledon champ Jimmy Connors there at the weekend.

A narrowed artery can be evidence of possible coronary disease.

Lord Sugar’s spokesman Andrew Bloch yesterday stressed he had not had a heart attack and he was back on fighting form within days and is still enjoying his Florida break.

So much so that he was involved in his usual Twitter rows with long time rival Piers Morgan – telling him he should apply to be the new White House toilet cleaner.

He confirmed he had a stent fitted following an angiogram, adding: “He was on the mend within a day and cleared to resume exercise after a week.

“He’s in perfect medical health and plays tennis and rides his bike for 40 miles regularly.”

Lord Sugar’s stent procedure was completed under local anaesthetic and he was discharged from hospital the following day.

A stent is a short wire-mesh tube inserted into the artery via a catheter. The stent is left in place permanently to allow blood to flow through the artery more freely.

Lord Sugar is thought to have had the operation in mid December after flying to Florida from London where he had recorded the final of The Apprentice.

His wife and children are thought to be with him in Florida as yesterday there was no-one in at their homes in Chigwell, Essex.

On Sunday Lord Sugar – wearing sunglasses – managed to play tennis against Connors and posted a picture of the two of them holding up tennis balls. He also posted a picture of himself in a plane cockpit with local pilot Spencer Rich who runs a flying school in Boca Raton.

Ex-US presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton have also had stents fitted, along with Dollar singer David Van Day.
