A shocking moment a footballer is struck by LIGHTNING during a match has been captured. Henrique, who plays for Agua Santa Under-20s, was treated by paramedics after being hit by the bolt during a rain-soaked clash against Atletico Mineiro in the Diadema region of Sao Paulo.
Amazingly, he was able to walk into an ambulance and made a full recovery without needing to go to hospital.
Towards the end of the clash – which was abandoned – players fled the pitch as a storm wreaked havoc.
While play was stopped after a bad tackle, centre-back Henrique was struck by lightning and, after running half the length of the pitch, collapsed in the dugout.
Video footage shows him lying flat on his back while medical staff attend to him.
