Newcastle United’s match against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday was temporarily suspended due to a medical emergency in the stands.

Tottenham’s Sergio Reguilon, at the urging of nearby crowd members, alerted referee Andre Marriner of the situation late in the first half, and teammate Eric Dier ran over to the Newcastle bench and indicated to the club medic that a defibrillator was required for a supporter in the East Stand at St. James’ Park.

The fan was stretchered out of the stadium and stabilized on their way to a local hospital, Newcastle confirmed.

Both teams left the pitch just before halftime, and play was halted for roughly 20 minutes before resuming.

More to come.
