England Nottinghamshire batman, James Taylor has been forced to retire. His sudden retirement came moments ago because of his serious health condition.

According to medical reports, scans have shown that the 26 years old has a similar condition with that which affected footballer Fabrice Muamba.

Taylor, who has played seven Tests and 27 one-day internationals for his country, posted on Twitter: “Safe to say this has been the toughest week of my life!

“My world is upside down. But I’m here to stay and I’m battling on!” He said. He has however missed his country’s pre-season fixture against Cambridge MCCU with what was thought to be a viral condition.

James Taylor posted on social media shortly after news of his retirement was announced. However, his county revealed he has been diagnosed with Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Arrhythmia (ARVC) in a statement in which England team director Andrew Strauss spoke about his “shock” and “sadness”.

“Throughout his career, he has constantly impressed with his determination to make the absolute most of his ability,” said Strauss. “It is immensely cruel that such a hard working player will be unable to fulfil his great potential in the international arena.”
