After celebrating yet another title last Sunday with his partner Emanuel Rego at the first tournament of the Brazilian Beach Volleyball Tour, Alison discovered the infection in his left foot. The previous week, he had cut his foot during training, but travelled to Cuiabá for the competition anyway, believing it was nothing serious. The FIVB Heroes team played an amazing game and finished on top, adding one more gold medal to their huge trophy cabinet.
On his way back home on the plane Alison noticed his foot was swollen. After consulting a doctor, the infection was discovered and the Mammoth went into surgery immediately on Wednesday. He is feeling better, but will stay hospitalised for 48 hours for observation before being released.
Everyone at FIVBbheroes.com all his fellow FIVB Heroes and his countless fans wish Alison a speedy recovery: see you back on the court soon!
