Swansea City striker Bafetimbi Gomis is recovering after collapsing during the Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur.

The French international fell to the turf in the seventh minute after Nacer Chadli had given Spurs the lead.

Medics were immediately called to Gomis' aid with the 29-year-old receiving oxygen after being seen to sit up having been placed onto a stretcher.

Gomis was taken off the field and replaced by Nélson Oliveira for the remainder of the game while the player continues to be monitored.

Swans officials have confirmed that Gomis' fainted, with the nature of the incident mirroring the three previous occasions in which he has suffered the lapse during his spell at Olympique Lyon.

The most recent incident occurred in October 2009 when he collapsed during France training, the second time is has happened in that particular week and at the time Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas said he was worried by the trend.

"We can't not be worried, it scares you each time," Aulas told ITele. "A vasovagal episode [fainting] is part of the things that can happen to people who have this type of constitution.

"It's now three times that it's happened. Yes, I'm worried."
