Sergio Aguero suffers heart arrhythmia during live Twitch stream

Aguero was forced to retire from football because of the same issue

Sergio Aguero suffered a heart arrhythmia during a live Twitch stream on Wednesday night.


The former Manchester City forward was forced to retire from football in December, 2021 after having a heart scare for Barcelona while playing jus two months beforehand.

He was forced to come off after complaining of chest discomfort during a fixture against Alaves before being diagnosed with heart arrhythmia.

As a result, Aguero was fitted with a pacemaker and confirmed his immediate retirement from football during an emotional press conference.

Since his retirement the Argentine has regularly streamed on Twitch but those watching on Wednesday witnessed a brief scare as the 34-year-old paused before putting his hand on his chest.


Thankfully he was with Ibai Llanos – one of the biggest streamers in Spain – who noticed the former striker put his hand to his chest before asking:”What’s up, man?”

Aguero then replied: “I think… I think… I just had a mini-arrhythmia.”


Llanos asked if he would need to get a doctor but Aguero explained that he has “a chip and the famous chip will detect it and send a signal.”

As well as former a new career out of online streaming, Aguero was also a special guest of the Argentina squad as they celebrated their first World Cup win since 1986.

He was a main part of the celebrations alongside Lionel Messi and the rest of the side on the pitch in Qatar after they beat France on penalties.
