Yepes given all-clear by medics

Atalanta defender Mario Yepes has been released from hospital after suffering a head injury in last night’s game with Juventus.

The Colombian international appeared to briefly lose consciousness on the pitch when he was accidentally kneed in the head by Simone Padoin during the goal move.

He was stretchered off with a neck brace applied by medical staff and taken to hospital for tests.

Today Atalanta released a statement confirming Yepes has passed all tests, ruling out any internal or external damage.

He will nonetheless be rested for a few days as a precaution.
