Mumbai, April 7 - Outgoing Indian cricket coach Greg Chappell was Saturday admitted to a hospital here after complaining that he was feeling unwell. He was later discharged after a routine medical check-up was conducted.

Chappell, who Friday submitted his report on the Indian cricket team's debacle in the World Cup, was rushed to the Bombay Hospital.

'He was brought by his personal physician for a routine check-up as he was feeling stressed,' said a spokesperson of the Bombay Hospital.

'Chappell is perfectly well, but a bit stressed out from dehydration. He has been discharged after the check-up,' the official added.

Chappell underwent body profile tests including renal, lever, lipid and blood profiles.

The official had earlier read out a message from Chappell for the media: 'I came for a routine check-up and am fine.'

The former Australian captain was earlier scheduled to leave for Singapore en-route to Australia Friday evening with wife Judy but had postponed his departure to Saturday because he was not feeling well.

The hospital spokesperson said Chappell's personal physician would examine the reports and decide whether he was fit enough fly out of Mumbai.
