What happened to Christian Eriksen?
Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest on Saturday during Denmark's game against Finland.
The match was the first game for Denmark in the Euros 2020, which were suspended last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Christian suffered a cardiac arrest just before halftime, and was instantly given medical attention.
Medical experts gave him CPR before using a defibrillator.
The footballer, who is still in hospital, released a brief statement this week, reading: "Thank you, I won't give up. I feel better now - but I want to understand what's happened. I want to say thank you all for that you did for me."
Denmark’s team doctor Morten Boesen said that prior to CPR and the use of the defibrillator, the footballer was "gone".
Boesen said in a statement on Sunday: "He was gone. We did cardiac resuscitation, it was a cardiac arrest.
“How close were we to losing him? I don’t know, but we got him back after one defib, so that’s quite fast.”
“We don’t have any explanation why it happened. The details about what happened I am not quite sure of because I am not a cardiologist, I will leave that to the experts. I didn’t see it live, only on screens afterwards.”
