Luton captain Tom Lockyer has opened up on suffering a cardiac arrest in a Premier League game earlier this season.

The Hatters' game against Bournemouth in December was brought to a sickening halt when the defender collapsed on the pitch for the second time in a matter of months.

After suffering an atrial fibrillation at Wembley in the Championship play-off final in May, Lockyer returned to football to captain his side in their first-ever season in the Premier League.

The football world stood still however when he fell to the ground at Bournemouth's Vitality Stadium, with the game effectively cancelled and re-arranged for mid-March.
