Robert Huth has revealed how he was trapped on a trans-Atlantic flight when the full effects of his meningitis began to take hold.
Huth believes he contracted the disease during the Potters' pre-season tour of the United States but only really began to suffer on the flight home at the beginning of the month.
"I didn't feel particularly great while we were out there," said the 28-year-old Huth. "On the flight going home, I could feel it getting worse and worse - and 35,000ft up in the sky is not a great place to be when your health is going downhill rapidly."
