Agency Report

Cristiano Ronaldo has offered his support to Danny Hodgson, the English footballer currently in a coma in Australia after an alleged unprovoked attack.

UK Metro reports that the 26-year-old plays for ECU Joondalup in the National Premier Leagues Western Australia and was out celebrating the end of the local season on Friday when he was allegedly hit from behind when walking into the train station in Perth.

His parents, Nicola and Peter, have flown out to Western Australia to be with their son after he was taken to Royal Perth Hospital in critical condition and has been placed in an induced coma after emergency surgery.

Ronaldo has offered his fellow striker his support amid the tragic circumstances and hopes that he will see Hodgson in Manchester when he recovers.

"Hi Danny, I just hear about your history, I hope you get well soon," Ronaldo said in a video. "I invite you to come to one of [our’] games in Manchester, so get well soon my friend. Take care."

Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson also said: ‘Stay strong, stay in there, you’ll get through this, I promise,” Henderson said. “I know how hard you are and you’ll be fine.

"I can’t wait to get you over to a [Manchester United] game and meet the boys. I’ve told them all about you and we’re all in your corner … we just wish you all the very best."

Nicola Hodgson said: "It is challenging to remain positive in hotel quarantine when all we want to do is wrap our arms around Danny, but we appreciate the Western Australia government allowing us to fly to Perth and respect their Covid-19 restrictions

"It means Danny is able to receive around the clock care from the wonderful Royal Perth Hospital ICU team, which may not be possible if the hospital system was overrun by critically ill Covid patients needing ventilation."
