However, after a career filled with alcohol, the star’s health quickly took a deadly turn. Ruddock is thankfully alive after undergoing a life-changing heart surgery at the time. He told the media that he was ‘dead for a minute’ during the surgery.

Ruddock received the procedure after physicians reported that his resting heart rate was at least 130 beats per minute, when it should have been in the 60s or 70s.

He revealed his doctors’ statements in an interview saying. “‘We got you just in time. I’m simply pleased I didn’t develop dementia as a result of chasing too many balls.”

The revitalized Ruddock currently accepts reservations for motivational speeches or video chats via soccerspeaker.co.uk.
