Kolkata: Triple Olympic hockey gold winner Leslie Claudius, suffering from cirrhosis of the liver, was again admitted to a private hospital following complications, his son Brandon said on Friday.
The Bengal Hockey Association (BHA) was to confer the 'Lifetime Achievement' to the 85-year-old today, on the eve of their AGM, but his son said "the association did not inform me before announcing it to the media."
"How can you give him an award when he's hospitalised? They should have informed me before announcing it. He was taken to hospital yesterday for his abnormal fluid retention complications," Brandon said.
