Fernando Torres has reassured supporters that his nasty head injury sustained during Atletico Madrid's 1-1 draw with Deportivo was "just a scare" and vowed that he'll be back soon.
The Spanish forward had to be rushed to hospital after a sickening clash of heads and fall that saw him smash into the ground with considerable force.
Torres was left stricken on the turf as team-mates and medical staff attended to him, with Diego Simeone having insisted he "heard a crack" from the dugout area.
Muchas gracias a todos por preocuparos por mí y por vuestros mensajes de ánimo. Ha sido sólo un susto. Espero volver muy pronto!— Fernando Torres (@Torres) March 2, 2017
Atleti later confirmed that the player would spend the night in hospital, while a further, more positive, update revealed that Torres was "stable and conscious".
He tweeted: "Thank you all so much for caring for me and for your messages of encouragement. It was just a scare. I hope to return very soon!"
Both of Torres' previous Premier League clubs posted the 32-year-old messages following the horrific incident, with the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Cesc Fabregas and Didier Drogba also posting on social media.
