A non-league footballer was left lying on the field for more than two hours with a broken arm while players and medical staff waited for an ambulance to take him to hospital.

Truro City's Michael Herve – formerly a youth player at French giants PSG – sustained an agonizing shoulder injury that forced the abandonment of the club's home game against Concord Rangers on Saturday.

The match was abandoned at 4:30pm, but Herve was left lying on the pitch, unable to move, until an ambulance finally arrived at 7:10pm.

Concord Rangers tweeted updates during the incident as Truro officials worked to get help for their player.

The club also tweeted its support for Herve and revealed that they had eventually left the ground at 6:20pm to make the 310-mile journey back to Essex, with Truro's Herve still on the pitch awaiting an ambulance.

MATCH ABANDONED: After nearly an hour stoppage and still no ambulance on site to treat the player, the referee has abandoned the game. We'll update when we can as to what happens next #YAMC
