He broke the news to his followers on Instagram, saying: “Long weekend. Turns out I’ve had a mini stroke.

Key added: “Thanks to everyone at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital, especially Charlie and Dr Baht. Now got to eat food with no flavour and take pills.”

The former England batsman played 15 tests and five one-day internationals.

Kent Cricket sent their best wishes through twitter.

One of his highlights included a double century against West Indies at Lord’s in 2004.

Key retired from playing in 2016 after a first-class career that lasted 17 years, with all of those at Kent, where he twice captained the county side.

Since ending his playing career, Key has become a popular pundit on Sky Sports.
