John Paintsil was unfortunately hospitalized this morning suffering from exhaustion and dehydration.
He received medical care at a hospital in Accra this morning and he has been released to go home to continue with his recovery.
The past five days have taken a severe emotional toll on the entire Paintsil family, Richlove 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.
