Former Olympic champion Lavillenie meets Umtiti at Aspetar

DOHA: France's former Olympic pole vault champion and world-record holder Renaud Lavillenie caught up with countrymate and Barcelona footballer Samuel Umtiti at Aspetar here.

World Cup-winner Umtiti, a key player in Barcelona defence, is struggling with a recurring knee injury and is being treated at the orthopaedic and sports medicine hospital.

Shaped by its vision to be a global leader in sports medicine and exercise science by 2020, Aspetar has become a preferred destination for athletes to experience world-class medical service including best-known figures in football.

Recent visitors to the clinic include Tottenham Hotspur’s Moussa Dembele, who concluded his rehabilitation at Aspetar and returned to team training in November.
