Earlier today, there was Bayern Munich team training for all the players who didn’t play a big part in yesterday’s disappointing 2-2 draw with Augsburg — including Thomas Müller, Alphonso Davies and others.

As reported by Bild, during a small-sided game during the practice, Corentin Tolliso suddenly sat down and reached for his heart, causing fears among bystanders that the midfielder was suffering a heart-attack, something that would be a frightfully uncommon occurrence for someone his age and physique.

The players and coaches immediately showed concern for the Frenchman, who was immediately examined by team doctor Peter Ueblacker. Unfortunately, this issue was deemed serious enough by Niko Kovac to abruptly stop the training session. Shortly after the incident, Ueblacker was spotted on his phone, perhaps explaining the situation further to a colleague or to one of Bayern’s board members.

Fortunately, Bild states that the World-cup winner is feeling fine now and that his feeling of discomfort only lasted a short period of time. Everyone at Bayern will be relieved that this only turned out to be a short moment of dizzy-ness for Tolliso and hopefully Coco will still be able to play a part for Bayern in their next few matches.
