The frightening incident took place during the Superliga finals between Sesi Sao Paulo and EMS Taubate Funvic, when Carvalho suddenly collapsed in the middle of the interview.

The 35-year-old Brazilian star was enthusiastically talking to a reporter, Fabiola Andrade, during a break when she suddenly closed her eyes and fell to the floor.

Andrade, along with several players and Sesi team doctor Sergio Xavier, rushed to administer first aid.

Later it was revealed that Carvalho fainted due to a rapid drop in blood pressure caused by the heat in the venue.
