Did Paintsil attempt suicide?

Deputy Black Stars captain John Paintsil who has been in the news lately for assaulting his wife may have attempted suicide, his Blackberry Messenger status update suggests.

He posted on his BB status “I will rest in peace …goodbye loved once[es],” shortly before he collapsed and was rushed to the Ghana-Canada Hospital, Tuesday.

News about the collapse of the player came as a surprise Tuesday morning.

It is not yet clear what may have caused the collapse but he was revived by medical officers and released from hospital shortly after he was rushed there.

Joy Sports can confirm again that shortly after he was discharged he posted on his BB Status “That was close. Thanks guys.”
