Olympic champion figure skater Roman Kostomarov can't overcome depression after amputation, reports Telegram-channel SHOT.
As the source points out, even regular meetings with a therapist are not helping the 46-year-old athlete cope with mental problems. It is noted that the figure skater will be in hospital until the fall.
Kostomarov was hospitalized in early January with an acute form of pneumonia. It was reported that due to subsequent complications, the medics had to amputate the athlete's hands and feet. In early April, it became known that the skater would stay in the hospital for a few more months, getting prepared for prosthetics.
In 2006, Kostomarov became an Olympic champion in ice dancing in a pair with Tatyana Navka. The duo also has two gold medals at world championships and three victories at European championships.
