World

Christian Eriksen is said to be in a “good mood” as doctors continue to carry out tests after he collapsed during a Euro 2020 game.

The Danish footballer is recovering in hospital after he collapsed about 40 minutes into the game with Finland in Copenhagen on Saturday.

Agent and friend of the player, Martin Schoots, has said he has spoken to the 29-year-old attacking midfielder, as reported by La Gazetta in Italy.

“He joked, he was in a good mood, I found him fine,” he said.

“We all want to understand what happened to him, he wants to do it too: the doctors are carrying out in-depth examinations, it will take time.”

Mr Schoots added that messages had been reaching the Inter Milan star from across the world and his partner and parents are with him in hospital.

Denmark team doctor Morten Boesen has revealed that initial tests on the player “so far look fine” and added that Eriksen “was gone” before resuscitation efforts began.

Mr Boesen said: “How close were we? I don’t know. We got him back after one defib, so that’s quite fast.”

“We don’t have any explanation why it happened.”
