Road 21/03/24 21:58 Migue A.

A few days ago he announced that he would be operated on for the second time in a few weeks on his heart, now Peter Sagan has just updated his health status after being operated on in Italy on March 20. From the optimism that can be inferred from his words, it doesn't seem that a double heart surgery will keep the three-time world champion off his bike.

Peter Sagan after being operated on for the second time on his heart: "After 15 days of rest I am sure I will be back to training"

Once again Sagan has chosen his Instagram account to communicate his status and make his medical report public. This has been the message.

Hello, my friends! First of all, thank you very much to everyone for your wonderful messages of support, they mean a lot to me. I would like to give you a brief update on my health. I feel very good after the quick pit stop that my heart needed. and after 15 days of rest I am sure I will be back to training on my bike. Here is the complete medical report:

The cardiac monitoring device, implanted in Peter Sagan on February 23, detected a supraventricular tachycardia on Saturday, March 16 during a training session in Marseille.

Dr. Roberto Corsetti, the sports cardiologist in charge of Peter, decided to undergo a new electrophysiological cardiac evaluation. Yesterday, March 20, at the Torrette Lancisi University Hospital in Ancona, a transcateter ablation for supraventricular tachycardia was performed by Professor Antonio Dello Russo, in the presence of Dr. Corsetti. After 15 days of rest and additional evaluations necessary by Dr. Corsetti, Peter will be able to resume training.

Although time is running out for him, the deadline to try to qualify by countries is May 26, it seems that this setback will not stop Sagan in his attempt to earn the UCI points necessary to compete in the upcoming Paris Olympics in the mountain bike event.
