Former Ukraine national manager Oleg Blokhin, who recently took over local club side Dynamo Kiev has been sent to hospital with high blood pressure, local media reported on Friday.

Doctors diagnosed the 59-year-old, who just a week ago stepped down as Ukraine coach, as suffering from a hypertensive crisis. They added that Blokhin will undergo treatment in the hospital for at least a week.
