Nice player 'threatening to jump from bridge' as emergency services called to the scene

Nice player 'threatening to jump from bridge' as emergency services called to the scene

Shocking reports in France claim an unnamed Nice player is involved in an incident.

An OGC Nice player is said to be 'threatening to jump from a bridge', shocking reports in France claim.

French outlet BFM Nice Côte d’Azur say the player, who has not been named officially, stopped on the hard shoulder of the A8 motorway and is threatening to jump from the Magnan viaduct, 100 metres from the ground.

Emergency services including police and firemen have attended the scene and Nice’s scheduled afternoon media press conference has been called off as a result.

As per an update from RMC, the Ligue One club have since sent a psychologist to the location in hope of a positive outcome.

Nice are one of the founding members in the first division in French football and won the Coupe de France back in 1997.

They are currently second in Ligue One after taking 12 points from six games in an undefeated start to the new season under Francesco Farioli.

The Southern France side are slated to take on Brest on Sunday at the Allianz Riviera.

SPORTbible has contacted Nice for comment.
