Eighteen-year-old Andrea Gresele plays for the Hellas Verona youth team, but the accident did not happen during a game or in training.

The incident happened on Saturday when Andrea was out playing with his friends.

He then climbed onto a train at the Porta Vescovo train station but came across a power line above the train and got raflost.

The electric shock also caused it to fall four meters to the ground.

Gresele broke his spine and it bled into his brain at the fall. He underwent surgery on Monday and remains in intensive care.

Both Hellas Verona and arch-rivals Chievo sent him congratulations on Twitter.

Andrea Gresele plays as a right back and has done so well that he was called up to the first team for the cup game against Cagliari in November.
