Valenciennes defender Sommeil out of coma

Valenciennes defender David Sommeil has come out of a coma two weeks after suffering a cardiac arrest at his club's training ground.

The 34-year-old former Manchester City player regained consciousness today and after undergoing tests club doctor Marc Chasselat was confident there were no signs of brain damage despite Sommeil's current inability to talk.

'He's woken up in the medical sense of the term but he is not yet communicating,' Chasselat explained to La Provence newspaper.

'His eyes are open, he's looking around him but he's not talking. He smiles from time to time, which could be interpreted as the start of communication.

'The cerebral activity is normal and there was no haematoma nor oedema in the brain.'

The newspaper also reported tests had shown no long-term damage or deformation of the former Sheffield United player's heart.

Sommeil, a father of two, was sat on a bench talking to team-mates when he collapsed at the end of training on August 20.

A club doctor used a defibrillator on Sommeil, who had been given mouth to mouth by a team-mate.
