Wolves were in action against Arsenal in the Premier League, and in the first-half a very serious incident would occur.

As Willian whipped in a corner for the visitors, David Luiz and Raul Jimenez accidentally clashed heads as they went for the ball.

The sickening impact left the Wolves star with a fractured skull, and he could easily have lost his life had it not been for the rapid response of the medics.

The documentary features interviews from the likes of ex-manager Nuno Espirito Santo, club doctor Matt Perry, Jimenez’s fiance Daniela Basso, and club captain Conor Coady, as well as Jimenez’s family members

The powerful film follows Jimenez’s recovery and eventual return to the pitch.

Thankfully, with the support of a modified headband, Jimenez is able to play football in the Premier League again.

Such a horrendous ordeal could easily have robbed him of his career.

But he has worked tirelessly to get back out there, and shows huge mental strength every time he takes to the field.

And to the absolute delight of not just Wolves supporters but all football fans, Jimenez is back in fine form, scoring goals again and helping the team to pick up points.
