A Dutch footballer who was left in a coma after collapsing on the pitch is 'doing well' on his road to recovery - and even reacting to watching the sport again, his loved ones say.
Ajax's Abdelhak 'Appie' Nouri sustained severe and permanent brain damage after suffering a cardiac arrhythmia attack in a pre-season friendly with German outfit Werder Bremen in July 2017.
The 22-year-old was in a coma for months but is now recovering in a house built especially for him, where he 'sleeps, eats, frowns and burps but is very dependent,' according to Dutch website AD.
