Fernando Torres awake, alert after suffering frightening head injury

Fernando Torres rushed to hospital after sickening clash of heads

Torres was taken to hospital after the worrying blow during Atletico's 1-1 LaLiga draw at Deportivo La Coruna on Thursday.

Fernando Torres collided with Deportive defender Alex Bergantinos.

Torres hit his head again on the turf as he came to the ground.

Thankfully, reports after the final whistle have confirmed that Torres regained consciousness in the hospital and is now sitting up and talking.

Manager Diego Simeone revealed the ill-feeling he suffered when Torres suffered the injury following the match.

In a message posted on Twitter, Saul Niguez said: "Friend, hoping it was just a scare and see you soon".

Initial tests showed no signs of any serious spine or head injuries, but the former Spain forward will remain hospitalized as a precaution, Atletico said.




Atletico Madrid tweeted an update on the injury shortly after full-time in which they said he had suffered a "traumatic brain injury".

The Spanish striker was surrounded immediately by players and medical staff as they tried to help the stricken player.

Torres had substituted in for Kevin Gameiro in the 65th minute.

"We didn't know if that noise was Fernando's neck or not."

Florin Andone put Deportivo ahead early at Riazor Stadium, and Antoine Griezmann equalized for Atletico with a remarkable long-range shot in the second half.

The draw leaves Atletico fourth in La Liga - 11 adrift of leaders Barcelona - while Deportivo are now 17th.
