Real Madrid stars Sergio Ramos and Alvaro Morata have sent messages of support to Fernando Torres after the Atletico striker suffered a horrific head injury on Thursday.

Simeone feared Torres neck injury

Torres was knocked out cold after an awkward aerial challenge during Atletico's 1-1 draw with Deportivo.

After a lengthy delay, the 32-year-old was removed from the field on a stretcher and taken to hospital, with Atletico later announcing that a scan appeared to show no permanent damage.

And the Madrid rivalry went out of the window as Ramos sent a tweet to Torres, his former Spain team-mate, that read: "Strength my friend!"

Morata also chimed in with support, tweeting: "Sometimes the colours don't matter! I hope you will be training and playing as soon as possible!"

The likes of Didier Drogba and Cesc Fabregas also passed on their well-wishes on social media, with the official club accounts of Chelsea and Liverpool, Torres's former clubs, following suit.
