comment on the article

Just read on the BBC website that Seve has been taken ill.
The BBC is reporting that
"The 51-year-old Spaniard, who briefly lost consciousness after feeling dizzy, is undergoing tests in Madrid."

I just want to say to the most charismatic and greatest golfer I have seen in my lifetime get well soon Seve, we love you and are praying for you.

Here is a BBC link to the story

In recent years there have been some remarkable stories of Sports people returning from illness. Seve's potential return would just be incredible.
Can you imagine the reception he wll get as he strides down St.Andrew's fairways.
It's spine tingling just thinking about it. ok

Did you see the short interview Seve did with Peter Alliss on the BBC news?
It was heartbreaking to see how frail Seve currently is, yet at the same time inspiring to hear his acceptance of his condition and his commitment to make the 2010 Open, however unlikely that may appear at present.

Just over a year ago Seve Ballesteros was taken seriously ill. In the days weeks and months that followed he had four operations on his brain and his life hung in the balance.

In the Sunday Mail today there is an article in which Seve tells his fans: Don't cry for me because I have had the greatest life of all

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/golf/article-1219561/Seve-Ballesteros-tells-fans-Dont-I-greatest-life-all.html


The interview Seve did earlier this year with Peter Alliss is due to be aired on BBC 1 on 14th October @ 10:45pm on the "Inside Sport" programme.

Seve says "‘This thing that happened to me is a very little thing compared to other people who have tougher times,’ said the 52-year-old, who was an inspiration to a generation. ‘They didn’t have the opportunity to live life so intensely and as well as I did.’
Ballesteros’ brave and heartwarming comments come in a remarkable BBC programme to be aired this week in which Peter Alliss visited his one-time fellow commentator’s home in the fishing village of Pedrena, northern Spain, to talk
about his recuperation and reminisce about old times

The man is a living legend and a hero to many golf fans.

Long life and good health to Seve.

RedFak, Thanks for the updates.

Here in the US of A, I can't play that interview video. He comes across as a mentally strong individual in the daily mail interview.

Seve is quite popular in the USA. Hope to see him honoured at one of the majors here.
