Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo and his Cádiz counterpart Fali were seen praying as the delay continued and it became clear the situation had not been resolved.

The match was stopped for an hour and Cádiz president Manuel Vizcaino told Spanish radio that the fan had been successfully resuscitated and taken to hospital.

Fati scored just five minutes after the restart as he headed the ball into an empty net after tiring out Robert Lewandowski.

The Spain international refused to celebrate and put his palms together to apologize to the home fans.

Ousmane Dembele struck in the second minute of stoppage time to cap a strong performance that maintained Barcelona’s unbeaten start to the season.

Earlier, it was Frenkie de Jong who gave Xavi’s side the lead before Lewandowski doubled his lead with his sixth La Liga goal after 66 minutes.

Speaking after the game, Xavi was asked about the incident. He said: “It was not a good situation for anyone. People’s health and lives always come first. Luckily they were able to revive the person and he is safe and sound.
