The 40-year-old is a former West Ham defender.

Argentina head coach Lionel Scaloni has been discharged from hospital after being involved in an accident while out cycling on Tuesday.

According to reports in the Spanish media, the former West Ham defender was thrown from his bike when it was hit by a car in Mallorca on Tuesday morning.

Scaloni was taken to hospital after reportedly suffering a number of injuries to his face and body. He was later released.

The Argentina national team said on their Twitter account that Scaloni had been involved in “an accident which was not serious” while riding his bike and was on his way home after being discharged from hospital.

Scaloni later took to social media to thank people for their messages and shared a photograph of his facial injuries.

The 40-year-old, who counts Deportivo La Coruna and Lazio among his former clubs, spent a loan spell with the Hammers in 2006, making 13 appearances.

He was appointed Argentina coach last year.
