- Clayton Oliver allegedly hit his head during a medical episode
- Vile rumors regarding the football star’s health have emerged
- But the Melbourne Demons have clarified the situation
The real reason Clayton Oliver was admitted to hospital has been revealed after nasty rumors circulated on social media.
The Melbourne Demons star visited the emergency room at Footscray Hospital on Thursday, with the Herald Sun reporting that he hit his head during what the club described as a “medical episode.”
He underwent a CT scan and an X-ray before being found free of any head injuries and was released early Thursday morning. Oliver reportedly spent four hours in hospital.
Melbourne confirmed on Thursday that the 26-year-old is now recovering at home.
The Demons are also committed to providing Oliver with any treatment and support he needs. Club doctor Laura Lallenec works closely with the superstar’s medical support team.

The Melbourne star was the subject of vile speculation after being admitted to hospital
Melbourne said in a statement that Oliver was “transferred to hospital by ambulance, following a medical episode.”
“The hospital performed a number of tests and Clayton has since been released from the hospital and is recovering at home,” the statement said.
“The club will continue to work with Clayton and his medical support team to ensure he receives all necessary care.
“We ask that the media respect Clayton’s privacy at this time.”
Earlier Thursday, vile online gossip surfaced, with shocking and unfounded rumors that he had died. These rumors were put aside following the Melbourne declaration.
Oliver was also the subject of rumors about his health earlier this season when he missed three months of football after suffering a mild hamstring strain, followed by an infected blister that left him forced to be hospitalized for four days.
There were even unfounded rumors that he had to be hospitalized due to an infection he suffered while getting the tattoo.
“The other reasons suggested for him not playing are ridiculous, disappointing and extremely difficult for Clayton, his family and friends to deal with,” Melbourne football boss Alan Richardson said at the time.
More recently, several AFL clubs have questioned the possibility of acquiring him in a trade.
