Former Australia coach Bob Dwyer was recovering in hospital on Thursday after suffering a heart attack, the Australian Rugby Union said.
Dwyer, 72, who led the Wallabies to victory in the 1991 Rugby World Cup, was taken to Bowral hospital in Sydney complaining of chest pains on Wednesday, according to the ARU.
"I was in the emergency ward at Bowral Hospital when I had the arrest," Dwyer said in a statement released by the union.
"I was on a monitor, and with a specialist, and they revived me straight away. I feel surprisingly well now."
After coaching in England notably at Leicester from 1996, Dwyer returned to Australia to take charge of the NSW Waratahs and led them to their first Super Rugby semi-final in 2002.
