Angioplasty procedure was done at Delhi’s Fortis Escorts Heart Institute by Dr. Mathur who said he is safe now and can soon attend to his regular work. But Kapil Dev needs regular follow up for a few weeks according to hospital statement.
Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar and many others tweeted wishing for his speedy recovery as soon as the news broke out.

Kapil Dev is one of the finest all rounders India ever produced in cricket history. His name will be remembered for ever as captain who made India win first world cup in 1983 with splendid catch of Master Viv Richards that helped India win the cup. Kapil is the only player to take 400 wickets and make 5000 runs in tests, which is still a record.
