Legendary Indian sprinter Milkha Singh was on Sunday discharged from a private hospital where he was getting treatment for COVID-19 infection even as he continues to be on oxygen support.

While the 91-year-old Milkha was discharged in stable condition on the request of his family, his 82-year-old wife Nirmal Kaur had to be shifted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) on Saturday night due to increasing oxygen requirement.

"On the request of the family, Mr Milkha Singh was discharged from the

hospital today in a stable condition. He is on oxygen and nutritional support," the Fortis hospital, Mohali, said in its update.

"Mrs Milkha Singh had to be shifted to the ICU last night due to increasing oxygen requirements. She continues to be stable."

The hospital had earlier said that they were being treated for COVID pneumonia. While Milkha was admitted to the hospital on Monday, his wife got admission in the same facility on Wednesday after testing positive for the highly contagious virus.
