Gareth Bale wished his old Tottenham teammate Ryan Mason a speedy recovery after he suffered a horrific injury on Sunday afternoon.
The current Hull player was forced off the pitch after just 21 minutes in their encounter with Chelsea following a collision with Blues defender Gary Cahill.
The official Tigers website has since confirmed that the 25-year-old has sustained a fractured skull, but he is in a stable condition.
The incident has seemingly rocked the world of football and many have been keen to wish Mason all the best.
One of those was his ex-teammate Bale, who shared that he was thinking of the player on his personal Twitter account alongside a picture of them both in the Spurs colours.

Mason played in 70 encounters for Spurs after breaking through the club’s academy before leaving just last summer in a £13million move to the Tigers.
He played in the Spurs team with Bale for five years after coming through the youth ranks in 2008 before the Welshman left for Real Madrid in an £85.3million deal in 2013.
Many associated with Tottenham will now be joining Bale in wishing Mason a speedy recovery.
