Footballer Wessam Abou Ali was shocked after collapsing on the pitch but grateful that he was able to survive. This past September Ali collapsed on the pitch while playing for second-division side Vendyssel FF against Lyngby.
Ali was rushed to the hospital, where he was saved. After waking up, Ali updated his concerned fans. "HUGE THANK YOU," Ali wrote. "Thank you to all of you who have taken the time to call, write etc. "Thank you for all the thoughts, prayers, and warmth you have sent.
It has been absolutely amazing to wake up to so much support, support and love. "The whole thing is just is big shock and very surreal right now. "Despite all this, I'm okay under the circumstances. I am recovering, and in good hands.
Now a long tough move awaits in the battle to get back to 100 per cent. I look forward to coming back even stronger, hopefully without too long a wait."
Ali thanked to his teammates, Ljingby players
"THANK YOU first and foremost to all the players from both Vendsyssel and Lyngby, who reacted quickly and set in motion the great help to me," Ali added.
"Equally big thanks must go to all the doctors and staff on the pitch, who with urgent notice were ready to help me, and bring me into a stable condition. "I am all of you INCREDIBLY grateful, it is something I really appreciate, both the doctors and ALL involved.
"Thanks to the ambulance people, doctors and everyone who has now made me recover, and made this whole horrible experience a whole lot easier. "To everyone who was at the stadium, I just want to express my greatest respect for carrying myself through this with the greatest support - Thank you so much for that.
"I'm in good hands. So you do not have to shy away from looking at my face yet. "Remember to love those who are around you, and even more enjoy yourself and be thankful for everything we have. "THANK YOU - LOVE TO EVERYONE."
Sergio Aguero, one of the the best strikers in the world, was taken to the hospital a month ago for a cardiac exam after suffering chest pain and dizziness. "I was told he was feeling a bit dizzy. I have just learned that he was taken to hospital and I can't say much more until I know,"
Barcelona's caretaker coach Sergi Barjuan said after the match.
