Fan in serious condition after falling at Wembley

A fan who fell from the stands at Wembley during Sunday’s Euro match between England and Croatia, is reportedly battling for his life.

Uefa it is said has flagged off full investigation into the incident.  It is not known for now whether the said fan lost balance and fell or whether he was pushed.

A Wembley Stadium spokesperson told Sky Sports News: “We can confirm that a spectator fell from the stands just after kick off in the match between England and Croatia at Wembley Stadium.

“The spectator was given on-site medical attention and was then taken to hospital in a serious condition.

“We will continue to work with UEFA to ensure the matter is fully investigated and we are continuing to monitor the situation.”

UEFA has confirmed the incident but declined further comment, citing privacy reasons.  A crowd of 18,497 watched the match at Wembley.
