Last Updated at: 3 weeks ago

Karachi: Pakistan’s former hockey olympian Mansoor Ahmed passed away today (Saturday) after prolonged illness.

The legendary goalkeeper, known as the hero of the 1994 hockey World Cup was 49 years old.

Earlier today, Mansoor Ahmed was admitted to the hospital when his condition deteriorated due to complications stemming from a pacemaker and stents implanted in his heart. He was put on ventilator, but didn’t survive since his heart was functioning with only 20 per cent efficiency.

Ahmed was a sporting icon in Pakistan since helping the country win the 1994 World Cup in Sydney with his penalty stroke push against the Netherlands in the final.

Ahmed played 338 international matches, participated in three Olympics and various other high-profile events in a career spanning from 1986 to 2000.
