Lazio have announced that Ciro Immobile remains in hospital under observation after his car collided with a tram, leaving him with whiplash and a compound rib fracture.
The striker was driving in Rome last night when a tram ran a red light and his SUV smashed into it, totalling the car.
He was quick to reassure everyone that he is fine and largely unhurt, but a statement from the official Lazio website has a clearer idea of the injuries.
Immobile has been diagnosed with a trauma to the spine – most likely whiplash – and the compound fracture of the 11th rib on the right side.
His condition is good, but he remains under observation at the Policlinico Universitario Agostino Gemelli hospital in Rome.
The 33-year-old Italy international has had a very difficult season due to repeated muscular injuries and had only recently made a full recovery, starting in Friday’s 3-0 win away to Spezia.
He has 12 goals and five assists in 30 competitive matches for Lazio so far this season, which sees them clear in second place in Serie A.
