Denmark midfielder, Christian Eriksen, has been spotted in public for the first time since he was discharged from the hospital after undergoing a heart operation.
WuzupNigeria reported that the Inter Milan star suffered a cardiac arrest during Denmark’s opening EURO 2020 match against Finland which they eventually lost 1-0 and he had to be resuscitated with a defibrillator in front of the crowd.
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.
“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 right away.
“I didn’t see the incident against Finland, but he looked healthy. It was really nice to see.”
