Australian rugby legend Lynagh suffers stroke
Legendary Australian rugby hero Michael Lynagh was this morning said to be stable after suffering a stroke on Monday night.
Lynagh, a 1991 World Cup winner, has held positions at a number of major property firms including Prestbury, CBRE and Burford Group.
A statement from Queensland Rugby Union said Lynagh was undergoing tests at a hospital in Brisbane to ascertain the cause of his illness.
He was admitted to hospital on Monday night complaining of blurred vision following a long haul flight from the UK.
“This news has come as a huge shock,” said Prestbury’s Nick Leslau. “Michael is super fit and we hope and pray his fitness and strength will see him through to a speedy recovery.
“He has so many friends throughout the worlds of rugby and property who love the man who is as modest as he is well known as one of the greats of international rugby of all time.”
