Iker Casillas and Sara Carbonero 'celebrating'? Instagram posts spark speculation
31 October 2019 @ 18:09

SPECULATION is rife on social media as to whether ex-Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas, his wife Sara Carbonero, or both, have been 'all-cleared' from their respective serious illnesses which saw them grappling their way through summer.

In May, just a month before his 38th birthday, Iker – who is now with FC Oporto – collapsed with a heart attack whilst training and was rushed to hospital, where he was diagnosed with a myocardial infarction, or narrowing of the arteries.

Days after he had stents fitted and was pronounced out of danger, reporter Sara, 35, revealed she had been diagnosed with early-stage ovarian cancer and needed surgery.

A month after her operation, she received the welcome news that the cancer had been completely removed and that, after the corresponding follow-up treatment, she would be 'fully cured', according to her medical report.

Since then, other than reflections on the precious nature of life and posts about their two young sons, and a few photographs from the couple's summer split between their native villages in central Spain, little has been revealed about how either are coping.

Iker is determined he will not retire from football until it is forced upon him, and is due for tests in December which will tell him whether or not he is likely to go back into play.
