And as medics attended to the supporter, the referee took both teams back down the tunnel.

In a tragic twist, there was also a stoppage at Oldham when a home fan needed treatment during the League Two clash against Rochdale.

Again, the players were taken off the pitch to allow the doctors to provide help.

Oldham tweeted: “Our best wishes go with the Latics fan concerned.

“A heartfelt thank you to supporters who alerted it quickly to the stewards and medical team in the Main Stand Upper.

“We will try to provide a further update but he is back responsive and receiving treatment.”

The match at Oldham resumed after an 18-minute stoppage.

These are the latest incidents involving health scares since players returned to stadiums.

Fulham ace Antonee Robinson, on international duty with USA, tweeted: “Thoughts are with the fan.

“Also, is it possible for someone to address that this seems to be happening very frequently now?”
