Physios of both the clubs arrived provide medical help As Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson reports, Graham Taylor to the home supporter in the stand.

Then the fan was taken away and he received applause from Vikaraj Road.

Eight minutes were added at the end of 90 minutes as a result of the pause in play.

And the Spurs took advantage as Davinson Sanchez led Heung-Min Son’s free-kick to win the match 1-0 for the visitors.

The incident comes just weeks after another Watford fan collapsed during a home match against Chelsea.

The supporter suffered a heart attack and was taken to the hospital where he later recovered.

And after that incident Watford chief executive Scott Duxbury said: “The club is truly a family and acted as such on Wednesday evening to look after one of its own.

“That’s how it should be, although we know how many individuals were responsible as part of the teams to ensure Larry got the care he needed.

“While they also included medical professionals from within Watford and Chelsea – to whom we express our gratitude, those assisting also included supporters who sit close to Larry in the upper Graham Taylor stand.

“I want to extend my personal thanks to those who took the quick, decisive and ultimately necessary action to help.”
