Player collapses

BAYONNE, France - French rugby player Francois Carrillo has collapsed during the warm-up of a Top 14 match with the Bayonne back-rower suffering what appeared to be a heart problem.

The 24-year-old collapsed after taking the ball at a line out a few minutes before the end of the warm-up session prior to Bayonne's clash with Mont-de-Marsan, an AFP journalist witnessed.

A heart specialist team gave Carrillo cardiac massage before the player was taken to hospital.

'I won't quit'

MADRID - Defiant Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho insisted on Saturday that he would not be resigning despite his team crashing to a 3-2 loss at Malaga which left the champions 16 points behind leaders Barcelona.

The disappointment of the defeat was compounded by Mourinho's controversial decision to drop goalkeeper and captain Iker Casillas from the starting line-up.

Mourinho appeared incredulous when asked if he was worried about his job.
