Olympiacos striker Michael Olaitan is in "very good condition" in hospital after collapsing during Sunday's Athens derby against Panathinaikos.

The 21-year-old Nigerian, who recently played against Manchester United in a 2-0 Champions League victory for the Greek champions, collapsed in the first half of Olympiacos' 3-0 defeat to Panathinaikos.

He regained consciousness before being taken to hospital for tests and club doctor Christos Theos now believes a viral infection was to blame.
