The match between Dynamo Kiev and Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk stopped when Ukrainian international Oleh Husev was hit by a knee to his head.

He fell to the ground unconscious and had reportedly stopped breathing.

Dnipro's Jaba Kankava rushed to his aid and pulled his tongue from his mouth to stop it blocking his airway.

Husev became conscious once again before first aid rushed to him.
