    The South Korean outfit released a statement via Twitter on Wednesday.

    "Recently, Faker showed symptoms of pain in his right arm and hand," it read in part.

    "He underwent a thorough medical examination at a hospital when his condition did not improve. Fortunately, no major abnormalities were shown in the x-rays and MRI results.

    "After a discussion with the coaches, players and the team - the decision was made for him to take a break to focus on treatment and recovery."

    T1 have called up rookie Yoon "Poby" Sung-won to cover for Faker in the interim.
