Guus Hiddink’s health called into question

Chelsea gaffer’s ticker is working overtime



The epic encounter between Chelsea and Liverpool this week was terrifically exciting for neutral fans, and even more so for Guus Hiddink.

The Chelsea boss was quoted in The Sun as saying his heartbeat climbed up to around 180bpm. This morning, the nation’s favourite red top followed up on the Dutchman’s words, with the help of Doctor Carol Cooper:

“That’s worrying. His maximum [heart rate] should have been 160.”

Why did the daily tabloid wait a day to reveal this alarming health fact? Could it be anything to do with the fact that The Spoiler made this exact point yesterday morning, and they “borrowed” it?

Surely they wouldn’t take stories from another source without crediting them? Oh wait, they do that all the time.
