Thank God that he is fine. Speedy recovery to him

@Scott_Geelan noted:

Scary. On the video it looks like he took a head to the back of his own head, knocking him out, then his head hit the pitch hard once he hit the ground. I think strictly this wouldn’t constitute a collapse, as I’ve seen reported, & is being knocked out as Owuraku has reported.
