Kid marathon runner Budhia Singh had to undergo a CT scan at a government hospital in Bhubaneswar on Thursday night after he had a bad fall while playing cricket inside the Sports Hostel where he has been staying for the last few months since his separation from his coach Biranchi Das.

Budhia seen here running at the 2005 Delhi Marathon, vomited a couple of times on Thursday evening prompting the hostel authorities to go for a thorough medical check up. Following the tests the doctor said although there was no problem with the child would be kept under observation.

The 8-year-old appeared normal and was seen chatting with people who had come to visit him including his estranged coach Biranchi Das who rushed to the hospital on hearing the news.
