It was reported that the 57-year-old had been placed in a coma after suffering complications with pneumonia.

He has regained consciousness after undergoing surgery, but a family friend has revealed he is yet to speak.

Ramazan Rabadanov told 360 TV: "He regained consciousness today. He hasn't yet spoken.

"Yesterday [Wednesday] he was in a coma after a heart operation."

UFC icons including Conor McGregor and Dana White are among the long-list of stars to wish Abdulmanap a speedy recovery.

McGregor, who lost to Khabib in 2018, tweeted: "Praying for the recovery of Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov.

"A man responsible for more world champions, across multiple fighting disciplines, than we even know.

"A true martial genius! Very saddened upon hearing this news tonight."

White posted: "Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov is a true martial artist who lives a life of pride, honour and respect.

"He instilled those same values in his son, world champion Khabib, at an early age and was always in his corner throughout his career.

"I know how close Khabib is with his father and I'm saddened to hear about his current state.

"My thoughts are with Abdulmanap and the Nurmagomedov family as he continues to fight."

It is understood that the 57-year-old fell ill in his home republic of Dagestan and was taken to the capital via a "special flight".

McGregor's kind words of support come amid an ongoing feud between the two UFC superstars.

The Irishman branded unbeaten champion Khabib a "scurrying rat" and threatened to "f***ing butcher" Justin Gaethje.

And he sparked talk of a rematch between the pair when he responded: "See you in July".
