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.”

Meanwhile, a statement issued by Media Adviser to Paintsil, Ebenezer Aidoo says the player was hospitalised after he suffered "exhaustion and dehydration".

Press release: Statement on John Paintsil's health status

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.
