A former professional Premier League footballer has called for an investigation after yet another player suddenly collapsed in the middle of a match last night.
Sheffield United midfielder John Fleck fell to the ground during his team's game at Reading and had to be taken off on a stretcher after receiving lengthy treatment and being given an oxygen mask.
The 30-year-old Scottish international "went down unchallenged before team-mates quickly waved medics on," reports BBC News.
Fleck was taken to hospital where he is said to be in good condition.
The player becomes yet another unfortunate addition to a lengthy list of footballers and other top athletes who have suddenly collapsed on the field of play in recent months.
