Run it off lad

I know the football season has finished, even though the fixtures for next season have just been released, but I thought I would post about football. Just for old time's sake..

When playing sport, or exercising for that matter, do you ever get hurt, either a strain or something similar and have to stop? Are you ok to start again soon after? How about after a heart attack?

Belgian footballer Anthony Van Loo (great name by the way) collapsed during a game but was saved by an ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator).

What could have been a serious situation actually had a good ending as Van Loo's heart was suddenly shocked back into action, seeing him spring back to life after falling to the ground.

You can check it out here.
