It's reported that Torres is suffering from a severe brain concussion, but there's no fear for his life.

He's staying in the night at the hospital in A Coruna for observation.
However, the Liverpool player took to Twitter to tell fans not to be too worried over his condition, writing: "Many thanks to all for your concern for me and for your messages of encouragement. It was just a scare. I hope to return very soon!"
