In a disturbing event, Shaka Hislop, ESPN’s seasoned soccer analyst, suddenly collapsed during a live broadcast on Sunday night.

The unsettling scene occurred while Hislop, the former goalie, was discussing a friendly between AC Milan and Real Madrid with co-host Dan Thomas.

An alarmed Thomas was heard yelling, “Shak! Shak! We need some help. We need medical!” before the broadcast hastily cut to commercial.

Medical personnel quickly attended to the 54-year-old Hislop.

An update on Hislop’s condition came from Thomas after the kickoff.

He shared via Twitter that Hislop was conscious and receiving medical care.

During the half-time, Thomas provided a more optimistic update, stating, “My mate Shaka, not here, but as it stands, it’s good news. He’s conscious, he’s talking. I think he’s a little embarrassed about it all, he’s apologized profusely. Not a man who likes people to make a fuss of him.”

He continued, “Obviously far too early to make any sort of diagnosis, but the important thing is, that Shaka’s conscious and we spoke to his family as well, because you imagine seeing that happen live. We spoke to his wife and things are looking OK.”

Hislop, a father of five, enjoyed a 15-year professional career as a soccer player, suiting up for Premier League teams Reading, Newcastle United, West Ham, and Portsmouth, and also for MLS’ FC Dallas.

The London-born analyst represented Trinidad and Tobago in the 2006 World Cup before joining ESPN’s coverage as an analyst in 2008.
