Another Professional Footballer Player Suddenly Collapses in the Middle of a Game
PJ Watson, Summit News, Nov 25 2021

Yet another professional footballer collapsed suddenly in the middle of a game last night during Real Madrid’s Champions League tie with Sheriff Tiraspol in Moldova. 26-year-old Sherrif Tiraspol winger Adama Traore was seen clutching his chest as he slumped to the ground in the 77th minute. The Mali attacker remained down as medics rushed on the pitch to help, initially trying to revive him with smelling salts to little success. The Daily Mail reports:

He was seen shaking his head in responses to questions by the medics and was eventually raised to a sitting position before being helped off the field and back to the dressing room. The Moldovan side have yet to detail the reasons behind why Traore was suffering from chest pains.

Other professional athletes have also recently suffered similar health problems, including 24-year-old Slovak hockey player Boris Sádecký, who tragically died after collapsing on the ice during a match last month. A useful thread of tweets by Yaffa Shir-Raz:

What could be causing all these sudden collapses of otherwise elite, fit and healthy professional athletes? The mind boggles.

Live Feed Cut As Former Pro Asks If Latest Footballer Who Collapsed Is Vaccinated
Steve Watson, Summit News, Nov 25 2021

After another professional football player collapsed on the pitch and was rushed to hospital in England this week, one former pro who was commenting on the incident questioned whether the player had been recently vaccinated, prompting the live feed to be suddenly cut. Sheffield United player John Fleck, who is 30 years old, suddenly collapsed away from play and had to be taken off on a stretcher after receiving lengthy treatment and being given an oxygen mask. Fleck was kept in hospital overnight and discharged after the health scare, which mirrors many other recent incidents, including the subsequent collapse last night of yet another player, 26-year-old Adama Traore in a Champions League match. Speaking about the incident for Talk Sport, former England international player Trevor Sinclair said:

I think everyone wants to know if he’s had the COVID vaccine?

The live feed was immediately cut, prompting viewers to ask why. Sinclair later took to Twitter to ask the same question:

Sinclair immediately received a torrent of negative responses for merely pondering the question, despite research linking the vaccines to heart problems in some people. Others backed Sinclair up, however. Another player, Ryan Stevenson, who used to play for the same team as Robert Fleck also courted controversy Wednesday for posting a get well soon comment along with a call for an investigation, and the comment “we all know what the problem is,” with an emoji of a vaccine needle. “Remember when players used to collapse on the pitch all the time. Something has to be done about this,” Stevenson also wrote in the since deleted Instagram post.

Premier League legend and former England international player Matt Le Tissier has also called for an investigation into why so many players are collapsing with heart issues:

Le Tissier has been previously attacked for asking questions about the vaccines:

Former Pro Calls For “Investigation” After Another Football Player Suddenly Collapses
PJ Watson, Summit News, Nov 24 2021

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. As we previously highlighted, major German newspaper Berliner Zeitung recently published a report seeking to answer why an “unusually large number of professional and amateur soccer players have collapsed recently.” The article listed a large number of recent cases of footballers who have had heart problems or collapsed on the field, in some cases leading to death.

That list includes Barcelona’s Sergio Aguero, who suffered breathing difficulties during Barca’s LaLiga clash with Alaves last month. Although the club have denied rumors Aguero is set to retire, he will definitely be out of action for months.
