Following a series of positive tests, the 37-year-old left CUF Porto Hospital with wife Sara Carbonero by his side.

Casillas went on to tell reporters: "I want to give thanks for the thousands of samples of affection. We will have to wait a couple of weeks or a couple of months.

"I do not know what the future will be, but the most important thing was to be here and be able to talk quietly. Thanks for the wait, see you soon. I can tell it and you can see it."

Nobody is sure whether the former Real Madrid goalkeeper will carry on playing.

But Spanish publication Marca report that sources in Porto are suggesting the Spanish legend might 'not return to action and that his playing days are finished.'

Casillas signed a contract extension with his current club back in March, which keeps him at the Estádio do Dragão until 2020.

It's clear that the Primeira Liga side have no intention of rushing him back to the pitch and putting him at risk:

"The work session was promptly interrupted to provide assistance to the Porto goalkeeper, who is currently at the Hospital CUF Porto." Porto said in a statement on Wednesday.

"Casillas is well, stable and his heart problem [is] solved,"

Since the incident, footballers have flocked to social media to share their messages in support of the World Cup- and two-time European Championship-winning Spaniard.

We wish Iker all the best in his recovery.
