Southampton vs Leicester suspended amid medical emergency in the crowd
Watford vs Chelsea suspended
Just half an hour ago, the Premier League clash between Watford and Chelsea was suspended due to a heart attack suffered by a fan in the crowd, with the players heading off the pitch as medical attention was administered.
As Adam Masina pulled up with an injury off the pitch, players were frantically gesturing for another injury, this time among the supporters.
Amazon Sport reported that a member of the public suffered a heart attack in the opening minutes, and was receiving CPR from both sets of medical staff, as well as emergency services on the scene.
Fortunately, the news on his situation was good.

The Telegraph report that the fan has been stabilised and will be taken to hospital (next door to the stadium).
Another issue in the Premier League
And now, another medical emergency has delayed the Premier League clashes, this time at St Mary’s stadium.
Southampton took a 2-1 lead into the half-time break, courtesy of goals from Che Adams and Jan Bednarek, answered by one from Leicester’s Johnny Evans.
However, the game took a more serious turn during the break, with a fan suffering a medical emergency, described on Amazon prime as a cardiac arrest.
*Note: this has since been described as otherwise, a collapse rather than a cardiac arrest*
There will be a delay to kick-off for the second half due to a medical emergency in the stands.#SouLei
