Last week, actor Antonio Banderas was rushed to a British hospital after suffering “agonizing chest pain.”
The Sun reports that Banderas was working out when he started experiencing unbearable pain. He was then taken to St. Peter’s Hospital in Chertsey for treatment. He was later released after doctors felt it was safe for him to go home.
His rep told People, "We can confirm that last Thursday Antonio was admitted to hospital after having experienced chest pain while exercising. However, Antonio was released that same day after doctors performed a check-up which confirmed his good health."
Banderas reportedly confirmed to The Sun that he had an “episode,” praising the medical staff who came to his assistance.
On Monday, Antonio addressed the hospitalization on Instagram, writing, “Enjoying nature after a startle. Kisses.”
Banderas has been living with girlfriend Nicole Kempel in England since 2015. He recently told Sunday Times about his move to the UK, "I find Surrey magical. I am not a party person anymore, so I have the space and peace to write and really get inside my own head. I’m working on several scripts.”
