A goalkeeper is back at it after being struck by lighting.

It happened nearly three weeks ago when 16-year-old Russian Ivan Zaborovsky was struck in this dramatic video taken near Moscow and miraculously survived.

Zaborovsky was seen to be struck by a thunderbolt as he kicked a ball during drills with his team. Players and coaches quickly ran over to discover Zaborovsky lying in the grass, burnt. It was later learned Zaborovsky went nearly two minutes without breathing and was given a heart massage and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation by his couches on the scene.

Zaborovsky was in a coma for three days before coming too. The goalkeeper has since signed a contract with FC Znamya Truda.
