Hi thank you for getting in touch, I'm sorry to hear about what's gone on. If he's otherwise well and not breathless/is able to play ok etc then I wouldn't be overly concerned. I would advise you make a GP appointment so they can listen to his heart and chest and ask some questions directly. They may choose to perform an ECG after this and decide if further tests are needed but the likelihood of an issue of concern is extremely low.
