Football player saves a life on the pitch

Quick reactions from Francis Kone saw him save a life after a horrendous collision during a Czech First League football match.

Bohemian goalkeeper Martin Borkovec came flying out to punch away a dangerous ball and collected one of his own players and Slovacko striker Francis Kone.

Rather than roll around in the dirt like so many strikers, Kone realised the seriousness of the situation and immediately rushed over to check on Borkovec.

The dazed keeper was swallowing his tongue and Kone reacted quickly to retrieve it and help Borkovec breathe.

What an incredible act of sportsmanship. Well done Mr Kone!!
