      A Tottenham Hotspur youth player has agreed to damages, believed to be £7m, after he was left brain damaged from a cardiac arrest on his debut.

      Radwan Hamed collapsed during a game in Belgium in 2006. Last year a judge ruled Spurs breached its duties to him.

      In a screening prior to signing for the club, an electrocardiogram test showed his heart was "unequivocally abnormal" but he was not stopped from playing.

      The club regretted a former employee had been remiss in their duties."

      This seems to be a dream maker/breaker scenario. He had a scan during his medical after which, his heart was found to be 'unequivocally abnormal'. You can imagine the reaction from the child, facing the fear that his dream to be a football player was in the balance.

      The news must have been devastating to him and his family. Tottenham took the risk and now, after ten years of legal battles with the Spurs lawyer team, the club has settled payment to the tune of £7,000.000.

      This is the doctor...

      ... former Spurs medical chief Dr Charlotte Cowie who was among those liable for allowing Hamed to continue playing football.

      She has since moved on from Spurs and is now ' head of performance medicine' for the English Football Association.

      The player...

      That doctor oversaw the worst medical period I remember at this club. It was at the time people said the pitch was cursed.

      Well it wasnt it was simply a terrible medical team

      It's a great shame all round, there are no winners in this.

      Poor lad I hope he isn't too badly fucked up.

      I hope the club acted with dignity and didn't fight this if true.

      It's been going on for a long time, I think the club did fight it pretty hard, probably based on the cash amount awarded.. It's just one of those horrible situations where something was overlooked and it came back to haunt everyone involved.
