Aren’t soccer players supposed to be in tip-top shape?
SEVILLE, Spain (Ticker) – Sevilla wing-back Antonio Puerta is sedated and in intensive care after collapsing during Saturday’s Primera Liga game against Getafe.
The 22-year-old was able to walk from the pitch at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan after being attended by medical staff who prevented him from swallowing his tongue.
He collapsed again in the changing rooms and was given cardiac resuscitation before being taken to hospital.
“The patient, Antonio Puerta, continues to be in the intensive care unit under sedation, connected to a ventilating machine and with hemodynamic instability,” according to the latest report, issued by the Hospital Virgen del Rocio on Sunday. (H/T – )
Hopefully, Puerta will make a full recovery, but in the meantime, I have decided to gain more weight, never exercise, and start smoking!
