Indian cricket chief Sourav Ganguly left hospital on Thursday.

Hundreds of youths gathered outside the hospital as the 48-year-old walked out accompanied by his wife Dona.

“I am absolutely fine and hope that I will resume my work soon,” the Board of Control for Cricket in India president and former national captain told reporters.

“I also hope to fly soon,” he added.

Ganguly suffered a heart attack while working out in a gym on Saturday and was rushed to hospital where he underwent an angioplasty operation.

“His heart today is as strong as it was when Sourav was 20 years old,” cardiac surgeon Devi Shetty told reporters.

“Sourav can participate in a marathon, fly a plane, or even get back to cricket if he wants without this event being any setback.”

Ganguly retired from Test cricket in 2008 having scored 7,212 runs including 16 centuries. He also scored 11,363 runs in 311 one-day internationals.
