Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres has been discharged from hospital after suffering a head injury during Thursday's draw at Deportivo La Coruna, the La Liga club have announced.

Torres, a second-half replacement, collided with Depor substitute Alex Bergantinos as they both went to head the ball in the 85th minute of the 1-1 stalemate at the Riazor.

The former Liverpool and Chelsea frontman then crashed heavily to the turf, with his head clattering against the ground.

Three of Torres' former clubs - Liverpool, Chelsea and AC Milan - tweeted good wishes to him, as did former Blues team-mate Didier Drogba.
