New Delhi/Bengaluru: Indian hockey team defender Surender Kumar was on Thursday, August 20 readmitted in a Bengaluru hospital this evening after he developed a swelling on his left arm, just a few days after recovering from COVID-19.

Surender along with five other India players skipper Manpreet Singh, Jaskaran Singh, Varun Kumar, goalkeeper Krishan Bahadur Pathak, and striker Mandeep Singh were on Monday discharged from SS Sparsh Multispeciality hospital in Bengaluru after recovering from the contagious disease.

But after Surender informed the doctors about the swelling on his arm, he was re-admitted to the same hospital as a precautionary measure.

“He has been shifted this evening. During the regular online check-up, Surender informed the doctors that he has developed a swelling on the left arm. So as a precautionary measure he has been shifted to the same hospital,” a source in the Sports Authority of India (SAI) told PTI.

“He is completely fine. He doesn’t have ay COVID symptoms but as a precautionary measure he will undergo all necessary tests to find out if it is related to COVID or not.”

Surender along with the other players was placed under quarantine at its Bengaluru center after being discharged from the hospital on Monday.

“All the six players are housed on the ground floor of the hostel, where other members of the camp have no access,” SAI had said on Monday.

The six players had returned positive for the virus between August 10 and 12.

Mandeep, who was asymptomatic, was the first to be shifted to the hospital by the SAI after a dip in his blood oxygen level. Later, Manpreet, Surender, and three other players were also moved to the same hospital as a precautionary measure.

Currently, 33 male and 24 female players are in Bengaluru for the camp. The light intensity national camp is expected to continue until September 30.
