Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have commended their players, after they had a life support training session.
The club today released photos of players like Conor Coady, John Ruddy, Fernando Marcal and Adama Traore learning the correct techniques for chest compression.
It comes after the scary scenes at Sunday’s Premier League game between Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur.
Shortly before half-time, the game was temporarily paused as players spotted something in the crowd.
It became apparent that a supporter had taken ill.
Eric Dier was seen running over to the dugout to call for a medic.
Thanks to everyone’s quick thinking, 80-year-old Alan George Smith’s life was saved.
Newcastle today provided an update on Alan, stating that he is still in hospital, but fully alert and walking about.
According to his son, he will spend the next few days in hospital while further tests are carried out.
This from the Wolves players is absolutely fantastic to see.
It is vital that everybody tries to learn about life support, as you never know when someone could be in trouble.
Wolves and their players have a huge platform and it is brilliant to see them using it like this.
On social media, fans showered praise on the club in response to their Twitter post:
