The heroism angle is much simpler to deconstruct but surely there's legitimate questions over Spurs' treatment of Lloris today.

Not the smartest move from Lloris staying on thru a head injury, but much respect for gutting it out

Staggered AVB didn't take off Lloris. Must have had a conversation with the doctor/physio and been aware of the situation. Hope he's asked.
