Former footballer David Ginola confirmed on Thursday that he was undergoing tests after taking ill in southeastern France.

Reports in the French media said Ginola had suffered a suspected heart attack while playing football in Mandelieu, located near Cannes.

According to Nice Matin, the 49-year-old was transferred to the Princess Grace Hospital Centre in Monaco after collapsing at the Mandelieu football stadium.

The publication stated that the ex-France international was "unconscious but stable".

Later on Thursday, Ginola wrote on his Twitter account: "Footy match in the midday sun, not very clever. Now having some tests done."

The one-time Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur man also quipped: "Whoever voted for a World Cup in Qatar in the summer?"
