'He was gone' - Denmark's team doctor confirms Christian Eriksen suffered cardiac arrest on the pitch and was close to death



Denmark’s team doctor Morten Boesen has confirmed Christian Eriksen was ‘gone’ before being brought back to life on the pitch.


The 29-year-old Inter Milan midfielder suffered a cardiac arrest shortly before half-time of Denmark’s opening Euro 2020 group game against Finland on Saturday in Copenhagen.


Medics gave the footballer emergency treatment and were able to save his life using CPR and a defibrillator as his distraught teammates formed a protective ring around him. He is now in a stable condition in hospital.
