A fans favourite at the Rec, he was part of a hugely successful side in the early 1990’s winning five league titles with the club.
Ojomoh also played for Gloucester, Italian club Parma and had a stint in Wales with Newport.
He earned 12 caps for England, playing four times at the 1995 World Cup in South Africa.
Ojomoh is in intensive care and in a statement on the Bath website his wife Emma said:
“Max, Ava and I thank you for all your kind messages and wishes. We can confirm Oj (Steve) has had a stroke, and he’s not out of risk yet.
“The ICU team at Southmead are doing a fantastic job and we will keep everyone updated when we have news, but our focus is on Oj.”
