Switzerland and Newcastle defender Fabian Schar received emergency help from an opponent after being knocked out during a Euro 2020 qualifier.

Schar clashed heads with Georgia's Jemal Tabidze as both went for the ball in the 24th minute of the match in Tbilisi.

Georgian player Jano Ananidze rushed to his aid after it became apparent Schar had swallowed his tongue.

Schar was put in the recovery position, and after receiving treatment for a number of minutes he managed to complete the game - setting up both goals in Switzerland's 2-0 victory.
