Bordeaux, French Ligue 1 club, has issued a release on the latest development on Nigerian winger Samuel Kalu’s heart condition after he collapsed on the pitch while in action against Marseille last weekend.

 

Kalu, 23, went down just five minutes into their play amid soaring temperatures at the Stade Velodrome on Sunday August 15. The incident sparked concern for Kalu as players from both clubs called for medical attention.

At one point, the players formed a human shield around Kalu while he was being treated on the field in scenes similar to what was seen when Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest in Demark’s Euro 2020 opener against Finland.

Thankfully, Kalu made a quick recovery and was able to stand on his feet. He was walked off the pitch by his teammates while holding an ice pack against his head but later returned to carry on playing before he was substituted for Remi Oudin.
