Wilton Prado ‘Zews,’ head coach and two-time back-to-back champion of Counter-Strike Global Offensive Major gaming titles, suffered a heart attack on Tuesday.
The 34-year-old was rushed to the Israelita Albert Einstein Hospital, one of the most well-regarded hospitals in Sao Paulo Brazil. Following testing, it was found that 90 percent of an artery was obstructed. It is reported that Zews underwent two angioplasties to clear the blockage.
The Gamer, who had taken time off from coaching earlier this year to focus on content creation and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT’s) posted the news on Twitter yesterday sharing that he had suffered a heart attack and been hospitalized.
Zews, who is still regarded as one of the best head coaches to have ever been involved with the multi-player tactical shooter game, received a flood of well wishes on social media from fans and members of the CS:GO gaming community.
Following the experience, Zews appears to be making a steady recovery, tweeting “Hopefully everything will be ok.”
