Euro 2020 semifinals: Christian Eriksen spotted at a beach for first time since cardiac arrest; Check pics- Denmark and Inter Milan star Christian Eriksen has been spotted for the first time since leaving hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest. The former Tottenham man collapsed in his nation’s Euro 2020 opener against Finland last month.
Christian Eriksen was recently spotted by a young footy fan at a beach in Denmark. Bjorn Bindzus was the young lad seen in the snap with Eriksen and couldn’t contain his delight at meeting one of his heroes.
He told BT Sports: “I was nervous and completely speechless when I had to ask about the picture. “But I’m proud that I did it and I’m very happy today.
Eriksen, 29, was given life-saving treatment on the pitch by medics, although it was Denmark skipper Simon Kjaer who first administered CPR to his team-mate.
The Dane was taken to the Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen after being resuscitated but returned home on June 18 after having a cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) implanted.
Eriksen has been resting with his loved ones in Odense but took a visit Tidvilde Strand beach on Friday, where he posed for a photo with a young adoring fan.
