Gianluigi Donnarumma has been released from hospital following suffering a head injury in the course of AC Milan’s 0-0 Serie A draw at Chievo on Sunday.
The 17-year-old goalkeeper was replaced by veteran Christian Abbiati within the 19th minute of the draw immediately after suffering a knock towards the head.
Milan sent Donnarumma for tests around the injury to make sure there was no significant damage and have now confirmed he has been discharged, while he will continue to be beneath assessment.

Sixth-placed Milan had lost their preceding Serie A game to Sassuolo and now sit 11 points behind Roma in third with nine matches remaining.
Abbiati added: “There is still a lengthy technique to go this season and we’ve to provide our all and attempt and catch up with all the sides above us within the table.
“But I am not pleased using the previous two outcomes and they may be hard to take.”
