It’s 10:07 p.m. Thursday evening at the Vélodrome stadium in Marseille. The French XV plays its rugby in front of 63,000 people and leads 54-0 against Namibia. In the 45th minute of play, Antoine Dupont, untenable from the start, launched a new offensive. Launched head first, Namibian captain Johan Deysel smashes his skull into the right cheekbone of his French counterpart. Dupont is electrified, paralyzed, pinned to the ground. He gets up with difficulty, puts one knee on the ground. He understands that it is serious.
