AC Milan defender Luca Antonelli was taken to hospital with a suspected head injury during the 1-0 Serie A defeat by Udinese at the San Siro.

The Italy international was carried off on a stretcher after appearing to collide with a player following a corner and falling awkwardly.

A team-mate reportedly reacted to make sure Antonelli, 29, did not swallow his tongue.

Milan have yet to comment on Antonelli's condition.
