Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper, Sergio Rico is out of coma three weeks after sustaining head injuries in a horse riding accident.
The 29-year-old footballer was taking part in a horseback pilgrimage journey to Huelva, near his home city of Seville in Spain, when he was knocked off the animal last month.
Rico had been taken to intensive care after sustaining serious head injuries following the fall.
He was taken off sedation two weeks ago, but was placed into a coma for a second time hours later.
The Virgen del Rocío Hospital in Sevilla, where Rico is being treated, said only major updates would be provided on his condition following a request by his family.
Rico’s wife Alba Silva has now provided a positive update on his condition to Spanish outlet Telecinco, confirming he has now been taken out of a coma again.
‘We can finally see the end of the tunnel,’ Silva said.
‘We’re going there step by step.
‘I knew from the beginning that he would get through it because he’s a champion.’
