Spurs defeat Swansea in game delayed by Gomis' on-field collapse
LONDON (AP) — Tottenham beat Swansea 3-2 in a Premier League game that was delayed on Wednesday after the Welsh club's striker Bafetimbi Gomis collapsed.
The French forward soon regained consciousness and was later said to be in a stable condition.
He collapsed as play was about to restart following Nacer Chadli's opener for Tottenham in the seventh minute. Paramedics and medical staff raced onto the field to tend to the player.
The ground where Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest three years ago fell silent. But Swansea manager Garry Monk later told the BBC: "Coming off the pitch he was talking."
Ki Sung-yueng leveled for Swansea before second-half strikes from Ryan Mason and Andros Townsend secured the win for Tottenham. Gylfi Sigurdsson reduced the deficit for the visitors late on.
