St Kilda forward Justin Koschitzke has been hospitalised after collapsing during a live segment on Channel Seven's Sportsworld on Sunday morning.
23-year-old Koschitzke was the guest panellist on the program's regular AFL segment with former Demons star David Schwarz. Koschitzke had just told Schwarz that his recovery from a fractured skull was ahead of schedule and ready to return to play in two weeks' time, when he slurred his words and his eyes rolled. He stumbled backwards and his head hit a board as he fell to the ground.
Seven immediately cut away from the interview back to shocked host Johanna Griggs in Sydney. (While the program is produced in Sydney, the AFL segment is filmed live on the balcony of Seven's Melbourne studios, located next door to Telstra Dome and AFL headquarters – Johnson)
