Wolves beating West Ham United wasn’t the only significant thing this weekend, as Raul Jimenez: Code Red dropped on BBC iPlayer.
The 30-minute documentary is now available for fans to watch, and it details the horrendous night of November 29 last year.
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.

Heartbreaking. Harrowing. Incredibly difficult to watch for well over half of it.
But by the end? Uplifting. Life affirming. Brilliant.
Cant recommend it highly enough. Just watch it and try not to cry throughout.

Just watched Code Red, the Raul Jimenez story. Very well done Wolves media team, a compelling watch and superbly put together. Highly recommended. Having spoken to him on Saturday too, he seems a very nice man. Well done to him too.

Watching ‘Raul Jimenez: Code Red’. Tough watch at times. Nuno comes across exactly how you’d expect, he’s a good man. @Raul_Jimenez9 is incredible though. Serious cojones on that lad. Love hearing that he’s scored now he’s back. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
