Christian Eriksen First Time Since Leaving The Hospital- See Details (photos)
Christian Eriksen was pictured with a young Denmark fan at Tidvilde Strand beach in the north of the country on Friday and was said to be looking “healthy”; the midfielder had a cardioverter defibrillator implanted in hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest in Denmark’s first Euros game, Newspremises understands.
The Denmark midfielder suffered a cardiac arrest during his side’s 1-0 defeat against Finland at Euro 2020 on June 12.
Eriksen, 29, was given life-saving treatment on the pitch by medics, although it was
Denmark skipper Simon Kjæ that 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 took a photo with a young adoring fan.
Bjorn Bindzus was the young lad seen in the photo with Eriksen and couldn’t contain his delight at meeting one of his heroes.
He told BT: “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.
“We were at a photoshoot for a commercial when I suddenly saw him while we were having lunch.
“So I waited to ask him until he had finished talking to his girlfriend. And he said yes
“I didn’t see the incident against Finland, but he looked healthy. It was really nice to see.
“I mostly watch football when the national team is playing, and here my favorite player is without a doubt, Christian Eriksen. I’m proud of myself that I have that image.” Creative whizz Eriksen received thousands upon thousands of get-well messages following his cardiac arrest, which rocked the footy world.
And he sent a thank-you message to all his well-wishers from his hospital bed.
