Andre Gomes has been released from hospital after undergoing successful surgery on his badly dislocated ankle.

The 26-year-old fractured his ankle in Everton's draw against Tottenham Hotspur in a Premier League game on Sunday following a tackle by Son Heung-Min.

Gomes suffered the horrific injury when he collided with Serge Aurier, having been tackled from behind by Son.

The Portugal international was left writhing in pain even as fans and the players close to the action were visibly distraught.

Everton confirmed that the midfielder went under the knife on Monday and was discharged from hospital to commence his rehabilitation with the club's medical team.

“Following a successful operation yesterday, Andre Gomes has now been discharged from hospital and will continue his rehabilitation under the care of our medical team,” a message posted on Everton’s official Twitter account read.

Meanwhile, the red card given to Tottenham forward, Son Heung-Min, has been rescinded by a panel who reviewed the incident after Tottenham appealed.
