Former England batsman Rob Key is recovering after suffering what he described as “a mini stroke”.

He submitted a post on Instagram on Monday morning thanking the staff at Kent and Canterbury Hospital for their care, as well as a photograph of him smiling.

“Long weekend,” he wrote. Turns out I’ve had a mini stroke. Thanks to everyone at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital, especially Charlie and Dr. Baht. Now got to eat food with no flavour and take pills.”

Since his playing career came to an end in 2016, Key – who scored 19,419 runs in first-class cricket – has become a hugely popular member of Sky Sports’ punditry team.

Through the coronavirus lockdown, he has been a regular on the screens of cricket fans, chairing and presenting several watchalong episodes of iconic matches from recent times.

Those have included the final day of the 2005 Edgbaston Ashes Test and last summer’s World Cup final, as well as a one-off vodcast with Andrew Flintoff and Steve Harmison, reflecting on the trio’s friendship.
