Despite reports that former athlete was admitted to the ICU, Zanoni, who works at Legacy Talent and Entertainment, wrote there was no reason to panic.

But by Sunday night, Zanoni's statement grew more serious. She asked fans of the 16-time world champion to send their "prayers and positive energy" amid his health problems, tweeting:

We'll be making sure to add to that positive energy. Get better, Nature Boy.
