Dembele faints in training ground incident


Atletico Madrid striker Moussa Dembele collapsed during a training session on Tuesday due to a reported drop in blood pressure.

Images of his dramatic slump and medical response were widely reported in the Spanish media.

Dembele, 24, was stretching with teammates in the centre circle at the club’s headquarters before falling to the ground, a leg shaking as he lay on his back.

The Frenchman’s worried Atletico teammates, coaches and medical staff rushed to help him and an ambulance was in attendance at the scene.

The former Celtic striker regained conciousness on the field and walked to the vehicle pitchside and eventually left the stadium at the wheel of his own car.

The Spanish media reported Dembele had a drop in blood pressure but is doing well.

Dembele joined Atleti on loan from Lyon in January and is yet to score in two appearances.
