Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres has been discharged from hospital after suffering a head injury that forced him to be admitted.
The Spanish striker had a clash of heads with Deportivo midfielder Alex Bergantinos but scans have revealed the 32-year-old has escaped traumatic injury.
Before his discharge, Bergantinos visited Torres in hospital and Bergantinos replayed his ouching message to reporters.
“He is very well and happy. They have told him how he is and he has understood perfectly,” Bergantinos said.
“He told me to be calm and that these things happen. He told me that something like this happened years ago.
“He was calm and even smiling. He remembers an occasion he had and other things, but he does not remember anything about our collision.”
Atletico played a 1 – 1 draw with Deportivo at the Estadio Riazoron Thursday.
