Fernando Torres was stretchered into an ambulance after suffering a head injury in Thursday’s La Liga match between Atletico Madrid and Deportivo de la Coruna.

The Atleti striker knocked heads during a 50-50 challenge in the 86th minute and appeared to be in trouble even before his head slammed off the turf.

His teammates were shaken, though some quickly leapt into action and grabbed the player’s tongue. Torres was led off the field after some delay.

The 32-year-old striker has seven goals and three assists across all competitions for Atleti.

A 65th minute sub, Torres saw Antoine Griezmann grab an equalizer for Atleti and it was quite a goal. Griezmann gives and receives the ball thrice before lashing a long left-footer into the Deportivo goal.

The side climbs above Real Sociedad into fourth place with the draw.
