The condition of the Denmark player, Christian Eriksen, remains stable as he recovers in hospital after collapsing during the game with Finland
Christian Eriksen is reportedly in a “good mood” as doctors have continued to carry out tests following his collapse during a Euro 2020 football match.
The Danish footballer is currently recovering in hospital after he collapsed 42 minutes into the game between Denmark and Finland in Copenhagen on Saturday.
Eriksen’s agent and friend, Martin Schoots, has said that he had spoken to the 29-year-old attacking midfielder, as reported by La Gazetta in Italy.
Fans in the Copenhagen fan zone left get-well messages for Christian Eriksen
“He joked, he was in a good mood, I found him fine,” he said.
This comes after the president of Tokyo 2020, Seiko Hashimoto, is “100%” certain that the Olympics will go ahead, but has warned that the Games “must be prepared” in order to proceed without spectators in the event of an outbreak of COVID-19.
“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.
The player’s condition remains stable, according to an update provided on Monday by Danish football officials.
Jakob Hoeyer, the communications director at the Danish football association has said: “We are in touch with him. We were in touch with him yesterday and today.
“(His) condition is the same as yesterday, stable, good.”
Denmark’s team doctor, Morten Boesen, has revealed that the initial tests conducted on the player “so far look fine” and added that Christian Eriksen “was gone” before the resuscitation efforts upon him 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.”
This comes after, in a judgment that took place on Wednesday, the High Court deemed that by awarding of the £560,000 contract to the communications agency Public First, which has connections with cabinet minister Michael Gove and Dominic Cummings, the UK government broke the law.
“The way the Danish players dealt with what must have been a heartbreaking thing for all of them, they stood up to it,” Robertson said.
“That will be the picture I remember and everyone should remember because, when one of their friends was in a bad place, they stood up and protected him.
“Whatever else happens in this tournament, for me they will be the heroes.”
