Tottenham defender Sergio Reguilon recalls one of his worst experiences during the game against Newcastle United

According to Daily Mail (h/t ChronicleLive), Sergio Reguilon spoke about the shocking experience he had to endure during the game against Newcastle United. He spoke after his team, Tottenham Hotspur, beat the Magpies 3-2 in the Premier League.

A horrifying incident took place during the game between Tottenham and the Magpies when a fan in the stadium collapsed after having a cardiac arrest. The 80-year-old, Alan George Smith, was saved by the efforts of the people involved like the medical personnel, players, referees and the people who installed defibrillators in the stadium.

The 24-year-old revealed that this incident is one of his most horrible moments and he is grateful for the medics who saved the life of Alan. He also added how he had difficulties in focusing on the match following the unfortunate event.

“I don’t know why I looked up into the stands at that moment. Maybe I heard the people shouting ‘stop, stop’ but I looked up there, and I saw one man lying down and another man pumping his chest with the heart massage.

Due to the situation, the match was halted shortly and resumed once everything was cleared. Reguilon has now invited the Newcastle fan to join them in the reverse fixture as he would like him to be there for the match.

“They came to tell us he was doing OK and my mind relaxed a bit. My team-mates were saying, ‘come on Regy, focus on the game, the man is stable, he’s going to be OK’. But I still had the image in my mind, the guy lying down and I thought he was dead. It was one of the worst experiences of my life.”

It is during moments like this that we can appreciate the humanity within people, and Reguilon has set a great precedent with his on-field heroics. The combined efforts of everyone was able to save a life and we must be thankful for it. We also wish Alan a speedy recovery hoping that he would be able to join us soon in enjoying football.
