Damar Hamlin has been discharged from Buffalo hospital following his on-field cardiac arrest.

The Buffalo Bills football player, 24, suffered a cardiac arrest on Monday January 2nd while playing against the Cincinnati Bengals.

A statement on the Buffalo Bills’ Twitter account, read: “Damar Hamlin has been discharged from Buffalo General Medical Center / Gates Vascular Institute, a Kaleida Health facility in Buffalo, NY.

“Hamlin was admitted on Monday and went through a comprehensive medical evaluation as well as a series of cardiac, neurological and vascular testing on Tuesday.”

They added: “Jamie Nadler, MD, critical care physician and Chief Quality Officer at Kaleida Health, and the care team lead for Hamlin said, ‘We have completed a series of tests and evaluations, and in consultation with the team physicians, we are confident that Damar can be safely discharged to continue his rehabilitation at home and with the Bills.'”
