Atalanta striker Muriel out of hospital after head injury at home

Atalanta's Colombia striker Luis Muriel was taken to hospital in Bergamo on Tuesday after hitting his head in a fall at his home, according to reports in Italy.

The 29-year-old, who has scored 17 goals in Serie A this season, received stitches but was later discharged after getting the all-clear following a scan.

Details of the accident remain uncertain with news agency AGI reporting the player slipped in the shower, while Sky Italia said he fell at the swimming pool at his home.

Muriel will miss Atalanta's Serie A game against Lombardy rivals Brescia later on Tuesday, when the Bergamo side can move second in the league, but should return for the trip to Verona this weekend.

Atalanta are through to the Champions League quarter-finals in their competition debut and will play Paris Saint-Germain in the last eight next month.
