Olympic silver medallist Michael Jamieson has revealed he had to have his heart restarted by doctors on Wednesday following a heavy training session.

Jamieson confirmed the situation via his official Twitter account on Saturday, stating he had "pushed too hard" during training, which took place on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old, who won silver in the 200 metres breaststroke at London 2012, expressed his gratitude to staff at the Royal United Hospital in Bath, where he was treated.

Jamieson also won 200m breaststroke silver at the Beijing World Cup in November.
