A team of heart patients who have entered the FA People’s Cup this year have a CPR celebration that they do every time someone scores.
Pacemakers FC were started by a doctor who brought together some of his heart patients in an effort to improve their fitness.
The club are now said to have over 60 players on their books, aged between 50 and 80, who have all had heart problems.
