Black Stars defender John Paintsil, who was rushed to hospital in Accra on Tuesday, suffered from 'exhaustion and dehydration', his media adviser has announced.
'He received medical care at a hospital in Accra this morning (Tuesday) and he has been released to go home to continue with his recovery,' Mr Ebenezer Aidoo said in a statement issued in Accra.
It added: 'The past five days have taken a severe emotional toll on the entire Paintsil family, Richlove (his wife) and John especially, and that toll manifested itself in the unfortunate incident this morning.
'The Paintsil family is immensely grateful to the Government of Ghana and the Ghana Football Association for the big support they have given and continue to give the family. We ask the media to give the entire family privacy during this difficult time.'
Paintsil, 31, was rushed to the hospital after he had apparently collapsed at home, local radio stations reported, but added that he is doing well.
The broadcasts said he was rushed to the Ghana-Canada hospital at East Legon in Accra by his wife and relatives.
Paintsil was in the news last Friday afternoon when police arrested him for assaulting his wife and causing bodily harm.
He was granted bail and was due at the Legon Police station to sign a bond of good behaviour on Tuesday.
Paintsil, who plays professional football in Israel, has delayed his return to Israel because of an injury he picked during the just-ended Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in South Africa.
