Swansea City striker Bafetimbi Gomis has returned to training for the first time since fainting during the recent Premier League match away to Tottenham, BBC Sport has reported.
The Frenchman collapsed on the halfway line immediately after Nacer Chadli had given Spurs a 1-0 lead in the match at White Hart Lane on March 4. He was tended to be medical staff from both sides for several minutes before being carried off the pitch, although Swans boss Garry Monk confirmed after the game that Gomis was ‘fine’.
The 29-year-old has had history of fainting on the pitch, doing so on three occasions back in 2009, and his explanation for the incident in North London was regular travel to his homeland and back. “I have been under a great deal of stress and fatigue due to my father’s health that requires me to go back and forth to France,” Gomis tweeted.
He was back in training on Wednesday, but it is currently unclear whether he will be fit to face Liverpool on Monday evening in Swansea’s next Premier League match. Signed last summer from Lyon, Gomis has scored five goals for the club in all competitions.
