Real Madrid’s presentation of new €50 million defender Eder Militao was cut short when the 21-year-old Brazil international complained of feeling dizzy and had to be helped away to recover.
The midday event at a sweltering Bernabeu was proceeding as expected, with the former Porto player having spoken of his joy at arriving at the “biggest club in the world” and promising to “give everything on the pitch” for his new team.

Then just as a reporter was beginning a question about the future of his international teammate Neymar, Militao began to loosen his tie and took a deep drink of water before saying: “I feel dizzy, I feel dizzy, it’s so emotional. I can’t do anything more.”
Madrid’s press officer immediately ended the news conference, and the player was quickly helped away from the room.
