World’s No. 2 golfer and 2020 Olympic gold medalist Nelly Korda announced on Sunday that she was diagnosed with blood clots and is recovering at her home in Florida.

Nelly Korda, 23, announced on her social media the disturbing news that she developed blood clots after she felt swelling in her arm. Korda went to the emergency room at her doctor’s advice as a precaution.

“On Friday I was in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL for a photoshoot and a commercial appearance. After a typical morning workout, my arm started to feel like it was swelling. At the advice of my doctor, I went to the Emergency Room as a precaution. I was diagnosed with a blood clot,” Korda wrote on her social media channel.

“I am currently at home getting treatment to eliminate further risks. I will communicate my status as and when and there is more information. In the meantime, I want to thank everyone for their support and ask for privacy for all our family during this time. I hope to be back soon! Thank you,” she continued.

The cause of her blood clot is still unknown and no further information was released. Korda was reportedly vaccinated ahead of the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.
