Mike Ditka released from hospital

Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE

Former Chicago Bears player and coach Mike Ditka was released from the hospital on Sunday after suffering a minor stroke.

Former Chicago Bears player and coach Mike Ditka was released from the hospital on Sunday, according to ESPN. Ditka suffered a minor stroke on Friday, at a Chicago country club. He said he knew something was wrong when he had trouble using his hands correctly, and couldn't speak the way he wanted to.

He also called the whole event "no big deal," affirming that yes, he is indeed tough. Ditka's agent, Steve Mandell, said that Ditka is home and plans on hosting his radio show, "The Mike Ditka Show" on Tuesday on ESPN 1000.

Also, as noted by ESPN, Ditka went on "Mike and Mike in the Morning" on Monday morning to say that he feels good. He said it was "kind of like driving down the highway of life real fast and I had a flat tire." Either way, it's good to see that he's healthy enough to be hosting his radio program immediately after being released.
