Alfredo Di Stefano hospitalized

VALENCIA, Spain -- Football great Alfredo Di Stefano will spend a few days in a hospital in eastern Spain for a routine check-up of his heart condition.

The Argentine-born former Real Madrid forward and current honorary president of the club was admitted Tuesday to Valencia's La Fe hospital where in 2005 he received a pacemaker after suffering a myocardial infarction.

The hospital says in a statement that the 86-year-old Di Stefano "is in good condition, but must undergo regular tests to monitor his heart condition."

Dubbed "La Saeta Rubia" -- "The Blond Arrow" -- for his speed, Di Stefano was arguably the best player of his generation, starring for Real Madrid between 1953-64 and leading the club to five straight European Cups.
