Ospina discharged from hospital after collapse on Sunday

Napoli goalkeeper David Ospina has left the hospital and given all-clear after he collapsed on Sunday as they take on Udinese.

Although he has been discharged, the Colombian, 30, will not join his international teammates as the club, in a statement said the goalkeeper needs rest for now. He fell to the ground two minutes before half-time and he had initially suffered a head injury in a clash with Udinese's Ignacio Pussetto.

"David Ospina was discharged this afternoon from the Pineta Grande Clinic where he had been hospitalised last night for a series of investigations and specialist visits. All tests are negative. Visits excluded any problems. The diagnosis is of vagal crisis [fainting] resolved within a few hours. The player has been advised a few days off and will not respond to the call-up of his national team," a statement from Napoli on the official club website read.

 Later goals from Arkadiusz Milik and Dries Mertens gave Napoli a 4-2 win. Ospina is on loan from Arsenal and is expected to sign a long term deal in the summer.
