Dr Merije Chukumerije, who's a cardiologist for the athlete, said in a statement: "He arrived at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre fully conscious, neurologically intact and stable. Mr James was cared for promptly by highly-trained staff and has been discharged home, where he is resting. Although his work-up will be ongoing, we are hopeful for his continued progress and are encouraged by his response, resilience, and his family and community support."

LeBron James posted an update on Thursday (27 July) where he said that his family were "safe and healthy". The NBA's all-time leading scorer tweeted: "I want to thank the countless people sending my family love and prayers. We feel you and I’m so grateful. Everyone doing great. We have our family together, safe and healthy, and we feel your love. Will have more to say when we’re ready but I wanted to tell everyone how much your support has meant to all of us! #JamesGang".

Bronny will now continue his recovery by resting at home. He is expected to undergo extensive testing to investigate the cause of the cardiac arrest, as is typical with patients.
