Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Sergio Rico is conscious and has started communicating after coming out of a coma, hospital sources confirmed on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old PSG goalkeeper was admitted to the Virgen del Rocio hospital in Seville on May 28 after an accident involving a horse at a local festival.

Rico suffered a traumatic brain injury and was left in a coma, but his wife Alba Silva said on Monday that he was able to recognise his family and say their names.

Last week Silva told local media that Rico had emerged from his coma and that she could “see the light”.

The goalkeeper won the Europa League twice with his hometown club, Sevilla and joined Paris Saint-Germain permanently in 2020 after a loan spell there.
