Mahlohonolo Andrews took to Instagram on Wednesday to write: I visited Neil this morning and this afternoon and he’s doing really well. He has been weaned off his ventilator and is breathing on his own. He is experiencing some discomfort which is to be expected but in general we could not have asked for a better outcome. The medical team and nursing staff have been phenomenal and true “Neil Fashion” he has them eating out of the palm of his hand😊. #blessedbeyondmeasure #hopeful #roadtorecovery

Neil Andrews, 55, admitted himself to hospital on Saturday after experiencing severe chest pains.

Andrews has been employed at the pay-channel for 29 years and his main areas of focus are soccer, rugby and horse racing.

In an interview with the Sporting Post website in June, Andrews spoke about the trying emotional and financial times following the Covid-19 impact on sport and horse racing.

His Clocking The Gallop partner Nico Kritsiotis told the same website that Andrews’ condition came as a “shock for all of us”.

“This is an indicator of the stressful times under which we are all living. But Neil is a positive person and a fighter,” Kritsiotis said.

The Andrews’ have three children – Elijah Gabriel Andrews (10 months), Noah Benjamin (2), and Brighton Nathaniel (7).

Neil Andrews also has a 23-year-old daughter, Melissa Jade, and 19-year-old son, Gregory Scott.

From all of us at MyTwoCents, wishing you a speedy recovery, Neil. Can’t wait to see you back on our TV screens.
