How to get a UK address and passport from Spain
UK-born footballer Sam Allardyce has been hailed a hero by the media after he saved the life of a dying patient in a hospital.
The 23-year-old Englishman was one of several people who worked to keep the dying patient alive during surgery on a brain tumour.
His actions on the night of the incident were broadcast live on BBC One on Monday, where the drama received an audience of more than 10 million viewers.
Allardyces actions in the video were captured by a member of the public and shared on social media, sparking a social media backlash that led to the footballer’s arrest and subsequent suspension from football.
The incident took place at a hospital in the Spanish city of Malaga.
It is not known exactly how Allardyches wife and family ended up in the hospital room where the patient was being treated, but Allardycys actions have been lauded as heroic.
A spokeswoman for the Royal British Legion told the BBC that the force was saddened by the incident, which happened just days after the death of the footballer.
“But the actions of the player in the situation have been praised by the Legion and our officers and staff are keen to see that kind of bravery rewarded. “
“This is an example of what can happen when the authorities take a risk to save someone who has been a hero to the people in his or her care. “
“We hope that the player will be supported in his efforts to get the right person back into hospital as quickly as possible and we urge the authorities to do the same.””
