Soccer hero di Stefano in a 'serious but stable' state

MADRID--Real Madrid legend Alfredo di Stefano remained in a “serious but stable” condition in a Madrid hospital on Sunday, a day after he went into a coma after suffering a heart attack, the hospital said.

Rescuers battled for nearly 20 minutes to revive the 88-year-old, one of the greatest soccer players in history, after his heart and breathing stopped while he was eating with his family near Real's Santiago Bernabeu stadium.

The Argentina-born forward was taken in a serious condition to the Gregorio Maranon hospital which later said he was in a coma, had been sedated and was breathing with the help of a machine.
