Newcastle-Tottenham Football Match Suspended Over Medical Emergency

Spectator has a medical event, condition unknown at this stage

Tottenham was leading in the game 2-1, despite Newcastle scoring first, early on during the match, prior to its suspension.

A football match between Tottenham and Newcastle was suspended following a medical emergency in the stands of the St James’ Park Stadium, The Independent has reported. The suspension came 40 minutes into the match after a seriously ill spectator was reported in the East Stand.

The ailing spectator was later taken to a hospital in an ambulance. His condition remains unclear.

At the same time, the players returned to the field, receiving three minutes for a warm-up after the unplanned pause to finish the first half. They were also granted an extra seven minutes of time to compensate for the suspension. Eight minutes later, Tottenham’s Son Heung-min scored for his team, bringing the overall score to 3-1 in the Spurs’ favour.

Medical emergency suspends Newcastle Tottenham match news

This is the first game for Newcastle under its new management – the club was bought from Mike Ashley by Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund in consortium with financial firms Reuben Brothers and PCP Capital Partners. While many fans seen at the St James’ Park Stadium took the news lightly, some people were apparently dissatisfied with the PIF’s move to buy an 80% stake in the club.

The Independent reported that a van was seen circulating around St James’ Park Stadium featuring the message “Justice for Jamal Khashoggi” and a photo of the said journalist, of whose murder Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has been accused. The crown prince himself said he took responsibility for Khashoggi’s assassination and failure to prevent it, but insisted that he never ordered the hit.
