Sarkis has been battling the virus for weeks, as his condition deteriorated in recent days and he was transferred again to the intensive care unit at St. George Hospital – Ashrafieh.
Al-Khatib published his picture with coach Sarkis, commenting: “You are my family, my brother, my friend, my father, and the father of my children. You are the man behind my success. I ask the Lord every second that you return to us healthy and know that you will overcome this ordeal with your strength.
Al-Khatib concluded his message to Sarkis by saying: “Lebanon, the world, and I am waiting for you, Coco.”
