Valenciennes' Sommeil undergoing tests

Valenciennes defender David Sommeil was undergoing a battery of hospital tests after collapsing following a training session this week, a news report said Thursday.
A defibrillator was used on the 34-year-old Sommeil at the team's training center on Wednesday, but the team insisted his heart never stopped, L'Equipe sports daily said on its Internet site. He was then moved to a cardiac care unit and was under sedation.
The team was not immediately available for comment.
Marc Chasselat, the team's doctor, was quoted as saying that tests Thursday found no problems in Sommeil's heart and arteries.
"Now his heart seems as if nothing had happened," Chasselat was quoted as saying in L'Equipe. He added that neurological tests were ongoing, but that "for the moment, there is no sign of any spot in his brain having especially suffered."
