ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt announced during Monday’s CFP national championship that he would not take his normal postgame “SportsCenter” anchor chair, citing a “medical scare.”

The veteran “SportsCenter” host made the announcement on Twitter that his “heart got a little out of whack,” but that he’s “fine now” and home from the hospital.

Van Pelt referenced “SVT,” which is short for supraventricular tachycardia, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Via Mayo Clinic:

“A normal heart rate is 60 to 100 beats per minute. A heart rate of more than 100 beats per minute is called a tachycardia. During an episode of SVT, your heart beats about 150 to 220 times per minute, but it can occasionally beat faster or slower.

“Most people with supraventricular tachycardia live healthy lives without restrictions or treatment. For others, lifestyle changes, medication and heart procedures may be needed to control or eliminate the rapid heartbeats and related symptoms.”

Neither Van Pelt nor ESPN immediately provided further details on his condition or recovery timeline.

Wishing SVP a speedy recovery.
