Turns Out only a Genetic Heart Defect Can Stop French Defender Lilian Thuram
The same heart defect that killed Lilian Thuram's brother on a basketball court several years ago, may very well keep the French international off the pitch for good.
The condition arose when undergoing testing in consideration of his move from Barcelona to French first division side, PSG.
Thuram retired from international football after this year's Euro Championship - but may very well have to hang up his boots for good depending on the phisios' final call.
