Unconscious Sommeil 'stable' following heart attack

VALENCIENNES, August 23 (Ligue 1) - Valenciennes have reported an improvement in the condition of defender David Sommeil, who suffered a heart attack earlier in the week. The 34-year-old has been hospitalised since collapsing at the end of a VA training session on Wednesday, and is yet to fully regain consciousness. But he has left intensive care and the club have revealed his condition is now stable. 'David Sommeil has slowly left the state of sedation in which he was placed artificially after his heart attack,' read a statement on VA's website. 'The patient is stable from a cardiac point of view.' Sommeil, a father of two children, is expected to be taken off breathing apparatus on Saturday and will undergo further neurological tests once he completely wakes up. The former Bordeaux and Manchester City centre-back was sat on a bench taking in fluid and talking to team-mates when he collapsed at the end of training on Wednesday. A club doctor used a defibrillator on Sommeil, who had been given mouth to mouth by a team-mate.
