Swansea striker Bafetimbi Gomis has collapsed just minutes into this evening’s Premier League match at Tottenham.
The France striker, a summer signing from Lyon, went to ground as the players made their way to restart after Nacer Chadli gave Spurs an early lead.
Gomis was attended to for four minutes and left the field a stretcher, by which point he was conscious and wearing an oxygen mask.
This is not the first time Gomis has lost consciousness, he has fainted three times since joining Lyon in 2004, with the latest episode occurring while training with France in 2009.
At the time, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas admitted he was “worried” about the striker.
“We can’t not be worried, it scares you each time,” Aulas told ITele. “A vasovagal episode (fainting) is part of the things that can happen to people who have this type of constitution.
“It’s now three times that it’s happened. Yes, I’m worried.”
