Colombian women’s national team striker Linda Caicedo collapsed on the field Thursday during training in Sydney, Australia.

Harrowing video shows 18-year-old Caicedo gripping her chest with her right hand before bending over and falling to the ground, prompting her teammates and medical staff to come to her aid.

Coach Nelson Abadia said Saturday that Caicedo is in good health and dismissed her “episode” as a result of being “a bit stressed” following her World Cup win earlier this week.

“It’s just an incident, she was tired,” Abadia said. “She was a bit stressed as well, because she was playing in her first World Cup…(which) has great relevance. And she’s 18 years of age. She’s a girl as far as football goes. But she has a great capacity and great character to assimilate all of this.”
