Atletico confirmed scans showed he has “no traumatic alterations or injuries” and will need to rest for 48 hours.

He said: “Thank you all for caring for me. It was only a scare.”

After former Liverpool and Chelsea striker Torres’ injury in the 85th minute in La Coruna, players from both teams immediately rushed to him and called for medical help.
