Eriksen, 29, was rushed to hospital in Copenhagen and was allowed home six days later after a successful operation to have a cardioverter defibrillator implanted.

The Inter Milan player has been off social media since uploading a picture of himself two and a half weeks ago as he has been recovering in the city of Odense, but was pictured yesterday at Tisvilde Strand beach, smiling and posing for the camera with a supporter, according to Metro UK.

The excited young supporter named Bjorn Bindzus, told Danish newspaper BT that he “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.
