Soccer player Alan Pulido, a forward with Olympiacos in the Greek league, has been rescued by Mexican police after his kidnapping in the northeast border state of Tamaulipas.
Pulido appeared outside state police offices with one of his hands bandaged alongside Tamaulipas Goverrnor Egidio Torre Cantu. When reporters asked him how he was, Pulido replied: "Very well, thank God."
"The most important thing is that he is here. He is with us," Torre Cantu said.
The Tamaulipas security co-ordination group said in a statement earlier on Monday that the rescue occurred shortly before midnight and involved state and federal police.
State police spokesman Evaristo Gutierrez said one suspect has been arrested, but provided no details.
Pulido, 25, was kidnapped Saturday night outside his hometown of Ciudad Victoria as he left a party.
