Newcastle vs Tottenham suspended after medical emergency in the crowd

Newcastle vs Tottenham was temporarily suspended

Newcastle's home fixture versus Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday was temporarily suspended late in the first half.

A medical emergency in the stands saw play halted just before the interval and the two teams were eventually asked to leave the field by referee Andre Marriner.

Tottenham players were incredibly quick to react on the pitch to make the officials aware of the situation in the stands.

Both Sergio Reguilon and Eric Dier spotted the incident unfolding and their actions resulted in a defibrillator being rushed to the supporter.
