A medical emergency in the crowd temporarily halted play during Saturday afternoon's Premier League clash between Watford and Tottenham.
In the 86th minute, a break of play was called at Vicarage Road as medical staff ran across the pitch to help the supporter in the Lower Graham Taylor Stand.
Several minutes later play resumed, with the medical emergency reportedly under control.
Watford's medical staff who raced over to attend to someone in the crowd have now returned to the dugouts, although there are still a number of stewards and what looks like medical staff at the scene. Game going to resume with Gil coming on for Spurs— Dan Kilpatrick (@Dan_KP) January 1, 2022
Spurs sent their best wishes to the supporter via their official Twitter account, as did Watford.

Back in October, Spurs defender Sergio Reguilon alerted referee Andre Marriner towards a medical emergency at St James' Park.
Eric Dier also sprinted to get a defibrillator taken over to the other side of the pitch by a medic.
The game was stopped and both sets of players were taken off the pitch while the individual received treatment in the East Stand.
Amazing recognition and prompt action by Eric Dier, Sergio Reguilon and more for their help in getting the ailing fan medical attention 👏 pic.twitter.com/ho7i6GcPIS— International Champions Cup (@IntChampionsCup) October 17, 2021
Last month, the second half of Southampton's Premier League clash against Leicester City was delayed due to a medical emergency in the crowd.
On the same day, Watford's game with Chelsea was suspended due to a suspected cardiac arrest in the crowd.
Our thoughts are with the supporter from Saturday's tie at Vicarage Road.
