Former Northamptonshire captain Geoff Cook has left hospital having recovered from a heart attack.

The Durham head coach was found unconscious outside the Chester-le-Street ground three weeks ago.

He remained in a coma in hospital for a few days during which time there were serious concerns about whether he would recover.

However, after successful treatment at Freeman Hospital in Newcastle, the 61-year-old has now been allowed to return home to rest.
