After another professional football player collapsed on the pitch and was rushed to hospital in England this week, one former pro who was commenting on the incident questioned whether the player had been recently vaccinated, prompting the live feed to be suddenly cut.

Sheffield United player John Fleck, who is 30 years old, suddenly collapsed away from play and had to be taken off on a stretcher after receiving lengthy treatment and being given an oxygen mask.

Fleck was kept in hospital overnight and discharged after the health scare, which mirrors many other recent incidents, including the subsequent collapse last night of yet another player, 26-year-old Adama Traore in a Champions League match.

Speaking about the incident for Talk Sport, former England international player Trevor Sinclair said “I think everyone wants to know if he’s had the COVID vaccine?”

The live feed was immediately cut, prompting viewers to ask why.

Sinclair later took to Twitter to ask the same question:

Sinclair immediately received a torrent of negative responses for merely pondering the question, despite research linking the vaccines to heart problems in some people. Others backed Sinclair up, however.

Another player, Ryan Stevenson, who used to play for the same team as Robert Fleck also courted controversy Wednesday for posting a get well soon comment along with a call for an investigation, and the comment “we all know what the problem is,” with an emoji of a vaccine needle.

“Remember when players used to collapse on the pitch all the time. Something has to be done about this,” Stevenson also wrote in the since-deleted Instagram post.

Premier League legend and former England international player Matt Le Tissier has also called for an investigation into why so many players are collapsing with heart issues:

Le Tissier has been previously attacked for asking questions about the vaccines:
