Bordeaux winger Samuel Kalu fell on the field before miraculously recovering and even continuing to play for several minutes before being replaced.
In sweltering conditions at the Stade Velodrome, the 23-year-old Nigerian fell to the ground only five minutes into their Ligue 1 match against Marseille. Players on both teams immediately expressed worry for Kalu and requested medical assistance.
After that, the players created a human shield over Kalu while he was treated on the field, similar to what happened when Christian Eriksen collapsed during Denmark’s Euro 2020 opening against Finland.
Thankfully, Kalu made a remarkable recovery and was able to get up to his feet. He was walked off the pitch by his teammates while holding an ice pack against his head.
