The incident occurred some time into the second half with Italian forward Sebastian Negri being knocked out in a collision with England lock Nick Isiekwe.

Negri was immediately rendered unconscious after the coming together with play coming to a halt.

England were in control from the off with Marcus Smith pulling the strings for an early score for England.

Here is a video showing Marcus Smith scoring his second try in as many Six Nation tests for his country.

It was Jamie George, however, who pushed England ahead towards a bonus-point win with two well-taken tries in the first half.

In this video – the 31-year-old barrels over in the corner for his brace.

Ellis Genge had been in rampant form throughout this game – but it was his intervention with the stricken Negri that earned him the most plaudits online. We see as the 26-year-old immediately sees that his opponent is seriously hurt and calls over the medics before anyone else has noticed.

Fans praised the England prop for his actions on social media.
