Fernando Estevez, coach of the Spanish club Badajoz, ran to the pitch to help the player of the opposing team Talavera, after suffering a severe injury, which caused him to lose consciousness in a violent confrontation between him and a player of Badajoz.
Immediately after the referee and the players demanded the intervention of the medical staff, Estevez ran to the injured player to try to treat him, as he regularly worked as an emergency doctor besides his work in training, and he remained accompanying the injured player until he drove him to the ambulance accompanied by the medical staff to check on him.
