Former International Olympic Committee president Juan Antonio Samaranch is in "very serious" condition in an intensive care unit at a hospital in Barcelona.

The 89-year-old Spaniard was admitted Sunday after experiencing heart trouble and soon after went into shock, Quiron Hospital chief of internal medicine Rafael Esteban said Tuesday at a news conference. He says Samaranch is sedated and on a respirator.
