Lionel Messi cemented his place in the stratosphere of football…
Atletico Madrid striker, Fernando Torres is reported by the BBC to be “conscious and stable” after an horrific head injury which occurred in his team’s 1:1 draw against Deportivo La Corouna a few hours ago.
The striker went into an aerial challenge with Deportivo’s Alex Bergantinos in the 85th minute of the game but landed awkwardly on his head. His teammates immediately rushed to prevent him from swallowing his tongue before he was taken off the field into an ambulance and driven to hospital.
We wish him quick recovery. Watch the video of the injury below.
