Newport County's Fraser Franks 'lucky' to be alive after heart scare

Newport County defender Fraser Franks has said he feels lucky to be alive after the heart scare which ended his career.

Franks had "flu-like" symptoms before the heart problems which prompted his pregnant wife to take him to hospital.

The symptoms arose in the middle of the night after he had played for the Exiles against Notts County on 19 February.
