Everton's Gomes released from hospital
London (AFP) –
Everton midfielder Andre Gomes has been discharged from hospital just two days after suffering a horrific ankle break.
The Portugal international had surgery on Monday on the fracture dislocation of his right ankle that he suffered during the second half of Sunday's 1-1 draw with Tottenham.
"Following a successful operation yesterday, Andre Gomes has now been discharged from hospital and will continue his rehabilitation under the care of our medical team," Everton said in a statement posted on the club's Twitter feed.
Gomes fell awkwardly after being tackled from behind by Son Heung-min, who was subsequently sent off.
The South Korean was distraught when he saw the extent of the damage to Gomes, but his red card was overturned on appeal on Tuesday.
