After six minutes of play during the Tottenham-Swansea match today, 29-year-old French international Bafetimbi Gomis dropped to the ground, briefly becoming unconscious, apparently requiring oxygen from paramedics. He was quickly rushed to a hospital. He was conscious and talking when he was removed.
Gomis had fainted on the pitch on three different occasions in 2009.
The look on everyone’s faces says it all. This is potentially very serious. We’ll update you as we learn more about his condition.
