Alfred N'Diaye reacted heroically when he carried a young injured fan from the pitch after a fence collapsed during Real Osasuna and Real Betis' La Liga match.
Betis midfielder N'Diaye cradled the young supporter after a barrier at Osasuna's El Sadar Stadium gave way following celebrations which greeted the opening goal.
The Red Cross rushed to help dozens of injured fans who poured onto the pitch, while N'Diaye - on loan from Sunderland - attended to one young distressed boy.
Osasuna said on their Twitter account: "The south grandstand's fence has collapsed and people are being removed from the field.
"Everyone is working together to get through this tense moment. The game is, obviously, suspended.
"Once new security measures have been applied, the match can continue at El Sadar.
"Collaboration is being sought over the public address system to help restore security measures and continue the game."
None of the injures are believed to be life-threatening, and the match was re-started after a 30-minute delay.
Osasuna won the match 2-0 but were still relegated.
