Former Swansea striker Bafetimbi Gomis fainted whilst playing for Galatasaray against
The scare occurred
However, this is not the first time the 32-year-old has collapsed.
Gomis suffers from vasovagal attacks, which has previously caused him to lose consciousness three times at previous club Lyon, and once while he was training with the French national team in 2009.
Certain triggers such as stress or hot temperatures cause his heart rate to slow down, leading to a drop in blood pressure and him fainting when there is a lack of blood flowing to the brain. Generally, sufferers regain consciousness when they fall to the floor, as blood flow to the brain is restored.
Ufak bir rahatsızlıktı... Korkuttuğum için üzgünüm. Herşey yolunda merak etmeyin.— Bafétimbi Gomis (@BafGomis) February 18, 2018
Kazanamadığımız için üzgünüm ancak sezon başındaki hedeflerimizinden dönmek yok, çalışmalara devam.
İlginiz ve alakanız için sonsuz teşekkürler.
Sizi seviyorum ❤
