MADRID (AFP) - Seville's defender Antonio Puerta remained in serious condition in hospital on Sunday after suffering a heart attack during his side's 4-1 win over Getafe.

Puerta fainted after half an hour of Saturday's match, with his side losing 1-0.

Teammate Ivica Dragutinovic rushed to his aid and prevented the player from swallowing his tongue as medical staff raced onto the pitch.

"He had a heart attack," club president Jose Maria del Nido told Cadena Ser radio. "He's in intensive care and is stable.

"We were scared, very scared, for the life of the player."
