Cadiz goalkeeper Jeremias Ledesma has been praised on social media after running onto the pitch with a medical kit and throwing it into the stands.

In a statement posted on its website on Saturday, Cadiz said the man was still hospitalized.

“One of the medical teams went to the stands with a defibrillator and a monitor, starting the resuscitation tasks,” the statement read.

“At the same time, FC Barcelona offered a second defibrillator in case its use was needed, and it was brought to the spot by the players themselves.

“The resuscitation was positive after a few minutes, and the ventilator was transferred to intensive care at Puerta del Mar Hospital, where he remains hospitalized.

“In addition, one of Tribune’s cameramen suffered a blackout, which was also promptly treated by stadium medical staff with no further consequences.

“The organization would like to thank the exemplary behavior of the fans at the south end of the stadium for this situation, as well as the security personnel and Cruz Roja for their quick action to ensure that this incident ends well.”

After the game, Barca boss Xavi said: “We all agreed to stop [the game].”

He added: “This stuff goes beyond football, we are talking about a human life here. Luckily they managed to save it.”

After nearly an hour, the match resumed. Goals from Frenkie de Jong, Robert Lewandowski, Ansu Fati and Ousmane Dembele secured a 4-0 victory for the Catalans, moving Xavi’s men to the top of the league after playing one game more than Real Madrid in second.
