Madrid - Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni was briefly hospitalised on Tuesday on
the Spanish holiday island of Mallorca after being hit by a car while
riding a bike, local officials said.
The 40-year-old was knocked to the ground by a vehicle that was
reversing near a school in the port of Puerto Portals, a spokesperson for
the municipality of Calvia told AFP.
The driver called the emergency services, who then transported
Scaloni to the Son Espases hospital in Palma de Mallorca, the capital of
Spain's Balearic Islands.
Scaloni suffered a "facial injury" and "several bruises" in the accident, local emergency services said.
"He is now on his way home after being discharged from hospital," the Argentine football federation said on Twitter.
