Former Kent, and former England double centurian Rob Key is in hospital at the moment after a stroke. Best wishes to him.

Well, it says mini-stroke, which I'm thinking is a trans ischaemic attack, which shouldn't do lasting damage, but there may be some underlying issue that caused it.

The underlying issue most probably being his lifestyle-his comment on"tasteless food" and Freddie and Harmi being his best mates says it all. He's also a big unit and red faced. In the vulnerable category -let's hope he heeds the warning.

could be, or it could also be more severe than a TIA, although mini strokes often also lead to full recovery very quickly. As WL says, it is a big old warning and he would do well to heed it. When my mum had one a few years ago, they immediately zoomed in on her high salt consumption. She had slurred speech, but was pretty much back to normal the next day.

Key is only 41. that's very young by any standard
