Bordeaux’s Alberth Elis taken to hospital after head clash against Guingamp but remains conscious

According to L’Équipe, Bordeaux attacker Alberth Elis (28) has been taken to hospital after suffering a nasty clash of heads in Les Girondins’ Ligue 2 match against Guingamp. The forward has been confirmed as conscious as he was taken to a nearby hospital. 

The Honduras international suffered a clash of heads with Guingamp’s Donatien Gomis in the opening 34 seconds of the second division match. Elis collapsed following the collision and after receiving lengthy treatment, the 28-year-old was stretchered off the pitch and surrounded by his teammates. The Matmut Atlantique applauded the Bordeaux forward as he left the field to receive further treatment.  

Prime Video confirmed that the Honduran was concisious in the minutes following his exit from the field, after eight minutes of treatment but remained in the stadium to undergo further assessments. He has since been transferred to a hospital in a conscious state.
