Ex-England batsman recovering after heart surgery — Geoffrey Boycott

Former England cricket team captain Geoffrey Boycott has undergone a quadruple open heart bypass surgery last month in Leeds, and is now recovering, his family has announced.

Responding to a post from a well-wisher, Boycott said he was "resting", with his daughter typing the replies on his behalf.

In a statement on Twitter, Emma Boycott, his daughter, said: "My Father, Geoffrey Boycott, had quadruple bypass open heart surgery on Wednesday 27th June".

The surgeon says the operation was a success and has now allowed him to recover from the invasive surgery.

Boycott, who captained England in four Tests and led Yorkshire for seven years, will not commentate on England's first two Tests against India but could return for the third match of the series, starting on 18 August at Trent Bridge.

Boycott played 108 Tests for England between 1964 and 1982, scoring 8,114 runs at an average of 47.72.

During his time at the crease, Boycott was renowned for his defensive play, but more recently the Yorkshireman has become known for his at times scathing punditry on television and radio.

Jonathan Agnew, whose on-air rants with Boycott are immensely popular with listeners, paid a visit and confirmed that all was well.

Former cricketer Geoffrey Boycott looks on during a lunchtime presentation during the second cricket test match between England and South Africa at Headingley cricket ground in Leeds August 2, 2012.
