Eriksen Spotted With His Family For First Time After Nearly Dying From Euro 2020 Cardiac Arrest
Christian Eriksen was spotted out and about with his girlfriend and their young daughter for the first time since being released from hospital following his cardiac arrest.
The 29-year-old collapsed during Denmark’s Euro 2020 opener against Finland on June 12 and required urgent CPR treatment from on-site medics.
Eriksen was brought back to life on the pitch in distressing scenes before being admitted to hospital.
But he was yesterday spotted strolling the streets of Copenhagen with his girlfriend Sabrina Kvist Jensen and their daughter as he continues his recovery.
Eriksen cut a casual figure in a white T-shirt, black shorts and trainers which he paired with a baseball cap and sunglasses.
And Jensen also looked effortlessly chic in a black T-shirt, olive satin skirt and flip flops.
The couple meandered along the pavement having done some light shopping in a positive sign that Eriksen is on the road to recovery.
During Denmark’s opening Euro 2020 clash with Finland on June 12, Eriksen went to ground unchallenged mid-way through the match in Copenhagen and received immediate CPR treatment from medical staff.
The match was postponed just after 6pm that evening and Eriksen was seen sitting upright whilst being stretchered off with an oxygen mask on his mouth just minutes later.
He was admitted to hospital before the Danish FA confirmed that he was awake and conscious, while his agent Michael Schoots revealed later that evening that he was able to speak and talk whilst receiving more checks.
The Denmark players then decided to finish off the match after hearing the news of Eriksen’s recovery.
