There were sickening scenes at Stamford Bridge yesterday when Didier Drogba collided with Norwich ‘keeper John Ruddy during an aerial skirmish and fell like dead weight to the turf – in the replays you could pinpoint the actual moment when ‘the lights went out’…

Droggers lay motionless on the pitch for seven minutes before being stretchered off and rushed to hospital, where he apparently remained unconcious for another half-an-hour before rebooting.

Thankfully, the official word is positive, with a statement on the Chelsea website announcing that Drogba has been released from hospital with a ‘mild concussion’ this morning after being kept in overnight for tests.
