Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin has been released from hospital nine days after suffering cardiac arrest during an NFL game.
Hamlin, 24, collapsed during a game on January 2 after making a tackle and had to be resuscitated on the pitch.
Doctors said they were “confident that Damar can be safely released to continue his rehabilitation at home and with the Bills.”
They said he underwent a “full assessment” and tests.
The incident has since sparked scenes of widespread support from players and fans at NFL games.
Hamlin was rushed to intensive care after requiring more than 30 minutes of on-field medical attention, following the tackle on Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins.
Players from both teams crowded around Hamlin as emergency medical personnel administered CPR and oxygen. Several were seen visibly distressed, many kneeling in prayer and some in tears, and the match was called off.
He spent two days on a ventilator, but doctors said he was walking around the hospital unit on Friday.
On Monday, he was discharged from a hospital in Cincinnati, the city where the game was played, and moved to another in Buffalo.
