A linesman who has been labelled a hero for his action in Saturday's Football game between Colwyn Bay Football Club and Trafford FC has spoken to the player he saved for the first time.

Danny Frost doesn't remember anything from the weekend's incident but had nothing but praise for Zharir Mustafa, the linesman who saved his life.

Frost, in an interview on BBC Radio Wales, said: "There's nothing I can say, other than thank you. He saved my life, thank you so much."

Those were the first words the pair had spoken to each other since the incident when Forst, chasing after a ball, collided with an opposition player running into a wall.

Mustafa said the severity of the impact had sent Frost' into a seizure and his tongue had gone into his throat. The linesman freed the Trafford FC players tongue and made sure he was breathing properly.

In the same Radio wales interview he said: "After the incident occurred and I saw Danny not being able to breath, the adrenaline kicked in and the first thought in my head was make sure he's in the recovery position and breathing and get bhim back with us.

"By the time that happened, I had a lot of help from both physios as well and the players.

"For me, it was just being in the right place at the right time just grateful everything everything ended well and that's all that matters and I hope to see Danny back on the pitch soon."

Welsh Ambulance Services were called at about 4.30pm on Saturday to reports of a medical incident at Colwyn Bay Football Club.

A spokesperson said an emergency ambulance was sent to the scene and a man was taken to Ysbyty Glan Clwyd.
