Chelsea players were shocked after their teammate, N’Golo Kante slumped in front of them at the club’s training ground.
N’Golo Kante fainted at the club’s training ground just two days prior to his side’s trip to Manchester City.
Kante passed out after a training session on Friday as Chelsea prepared for Sunday’s match at the Etihad, which they lost 1-0.
According to the Telegraph, his team-mates feared he had suffered a heart problem when he collapsed in front of them.
The French international had suffered a heart problem, it was learned, but was found free of any heart issue after cardiology tests.
A Chelsea doctor was on the scene just seconds after he fainted, and he quickly helped bring him to consciousness.
Having regained consciousness and received treatment, Kante had cardiology tests, which came back clear.
The 26-year-old was cleared by a specialist to play against City but he felt unwell on Sunday morning and it was decided that he would not be risked.
Kante reported for training yesterday morning and completed the planned session without further problems.
He is expected to be available for Saturday’s Premier League game against Crystal Palace.
