Mears 'shocked' by heart diagnosis

Bath hooker Lee Mears tells BBC Points West he was "shocked" to learn of his heart condition, which has forced him to retire from the game.

The 33-year-old underwent a routine cardiac screening last month, where it was discovered he had an unusual arrhythmia, and he was advised to quit playing.

Mears says he is feeling "positive" about his future and hopes to remain in the game at some level.
