Update, and a bit of history:

Lynagh stable after suffering stroke - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Wallabies legend Michael Lynagh is in a stable condition in Royal Brisbane Hospital after suffering a stroke on Monday night.
The former Australian fly half, who helped Australia to victory in the 1991 World Cup, is undergoing tests to discover the cause of the illness, Queensland Rugby Union confirmed this morning.
News of Lynagh's admission to hospital with blurred vision and headaches broke on Wednesday evening.
Former Australian captain Andrew Slack, who wrote Lynagh's biography, said Lynagh had been admitted to intensive care from a "monitoring point of view".
Fellow World Cup-winning team-mate Tim Horan tweeted that Lynagh seemed to be recovering well.
"Michael Lynagh underdoing MRI this morning. Up and walking."
Lynagh had returned from the United Kingdom for a school reunion and to visit friends.
"He lives in the UK now and he is back here to visit his family and just felt unwell on Monday night and headaches and various things and ended up in hospital, which I think was initially diagnosed as a stroke-type of event," Slack told ABC Radio.
"But the doctors are still trying to work out exactly what has happened."
Slack says it was a shock to hear that his former team-mate was ill.
"Clearly he has got some issues from it some blurred vision and stuff," he said.
"But I am led to believe he got up and went to the toilet at one stage, so there's not a lot known, but he's stayed very fit since retiring some years ago and so I think she is a bolt out of the blue."
Lynagh enjoyed an illustrious career for both Australian and Queensland in the number 10 jersey.
In 72 Tests for Australia, Lynagh set records for individual Test match points (911), conversions (140) and penalty goals (177) as well as most Tests as a half-back combination with Nick Farr-Jones (47).
For Queensland, Lynagh scored 1,166 points with 24 tries, 193 conversions, 205 penalty goals and 23 field goals in exactly 100 games.
Perhaps his most famous moment as a player came during the 1991 World Cup quarter-final when his last-minute try secured victory for Australia over Ireland.
The Wallabies went on to win the William Webb Ellis Cup for the first time, beating hosts England in the final with Lynagh's boot accounting for eight points in the 12-6 victory.
He also helped Queensland to titles in 1992, 1994 and 1995 in the early Super Six and Super 10 competitions.
