Former kickboxing champ “shaken” by his experience of a heart attack
Former karate champion Sam Greco is a tough man.

Greco, 50, told Neil Mitchell he should have called an ambulance straight way, and urged anyone who experiences a similar situation not to be a hero.

“When you think you’re invincible, you’re not.
“The last thing you want to challenge is your health.”
