Barcelona’s La Liga game at Cadiz was halted for about 50 minutes when a fan had a medical emergency.

The visitors were leading 2-0 with fewer than 10 minutes remaining when the incident happened.

Cadiz goalkeeper Jeremias Ledesma ran across the pitch with a medical kit and threw it into the stands before the players were taken off.

There were two further goals when play resumed as Barca moved top of the table with a fourth successive league win.

Fellow substitute Ansu Fati added a third while France forward Ousmane Dembele rounded off the scoring late on.

Xavi’s side now sit a point above champions Real Madrid, who play Mallorca on Sunday (13:00 BST).
