Torino's Cristian Ansaldi Softening Elseid Hysaj's Fall Saved Him From A Broken Neck

Torino's Cristian Ansaldi Softening Elseid Hysaj's Fall Saved Him From A Broken Neck

Cristian Ansaldi may well have saved Elseid Hysaj's life last night in the game between Torino and Napoli, no exaggeration.

34 minutes into the game, the Albanian landed horrifically on the back of his neck after contesting an aerial challenge with the Torino left-back and had to be stretchered off in the 0-0 draw.

It looked like something you would normally see in a WWE ring but the quick thinking of Ansaldi, who ever so slightly softened his opponent's fall, may well have have proved crucial.

Following an accidental clash of heads, Mario Scavone landed horribly - his head smacking the turf of the pitch with frightening impact as he was knocked unconsciousness.

Both sets of players frantically signalled for help, which came in the form of medics, and they also moved advertising boards so the ambulance could get through.

Scavone, on loan at Lecce at Parma, regained consciousness in hospital.
