A Canaries' fan who suffered a heart attack at the home match against Brentford on Saturday is recovering in hospital.

An East of England Ambulance Service spokesman confirmed it was called to Carrow Road just after 3pm, and conveyed a supporter to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

The brother of the heart attack victim posted a message on the website, thanking paramedics and fans who helped him.

It said: 'My brother was the person who suffered the heart attack and was attended by two fans who were brilliant along with the medics.

'He is now in hospital and certainly looks a lot better and is having all the tests. Thanks to you two guys and everyone else who helped.'
