OLLIE WINES says he won’t play for Port Adelaide this weekend but feels “100-per-cent fine” after a health scare which saw him spend a night in hospital late last week.

Wines was subbed out of Thursday night’s game against Melbourne after feeling unwell and later went to hospital after a heart irregularity was detected.

The issue resolved itself within 24 hours and the Brownlow Medallist was back at Alberton Oval on Monday, confirming he would not face Carlton on Sunday but was feeling well.

“I’m 100 per-cent back to normal thanks to the staff at Calvary (Hospital) – the doctors and nurses really looked after me and I’m 100 per-cent fine,” Wines said to waiting media as he arrived.

“There were a few little issues but they’ve been rectified now.

“I’ll miss this week at this stage but there are some more tests to look into this week just to get a bit of an idea of a time frame but hopefully not too much footy.

“It was (a bit scary) during the game and then after the game when I went off to hospital and they rushed me off when they saw something was wrong, but the Calvary staff, the cardiologist and nurses there were so reassuring and really put my mind at ease.”

While he did not go into specifics around his condition, Wines explained that there had been a diagnosis and he had been reassured that it was a common problem – particularly for elite athletes.

And he was quick to rule out any concerns related to his COVID-19 vaccination and myocarditis.

“It’s nothing to do with that. It’s completely unrelated,” Wines said.

“It’s more a heart rhythm issue that is pretty common in elderly people and elite athletes.

“Once it was explained to me it was very reassuring and there’s not too many long-term effects.

“The prognosis is really positive. I’ve got a few more tests to come and to see the cardiologist again but at this stage it’s not a big issue.”

Wines will remain under observation in the short-term and have follow up testing, with a timeline for his return to training and playing to become more apparent after more information becomes available.

Prior to the game against the Demons, the 27-year-old was averaging 31.7 disposals per game so far this season.
