Spain has had more than its fair share of on-field tragedies in the last few years, with the deaths of Antonio Puerta and Jarque.

There was cleary concern, therefore, when a ball boy collapsed shortly before the start of the second half in the game between Hercules and Real Sociedad.

The story had a happy ending, however. The boy regained consciouness after being taken off the field, and was reported to have passed out due to playing football and not eating for the whole day.
