Christian Eriksen was pictured with a young Denmark fan at Tidvilde Strand beach in
the north of the country on Friday and was said to be
looking “healthy”; the midfielder had a cardioverter defibrillator implanted in
hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest in Denmark’s first Euros game
The Denmark midfielder suffered a cardiac arrest during his side’s 1-0 defeat against
Finland at Euro 2020 on June 12.
Eriksen, 29, was given life-saving treatment on the pitch by medics, although it was
Denmark skipper Simon Kjæ that first administered CPR to his team-mate.
The Dane was taken to the Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen after being resuscitated but
returned home on June 18 after having a cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) implanted.
Eriksen has been resting with his loved ones in Odense but took a visit Tidvilde
Strand beach on Friday, where he took a photo with a young adoring fan.
Bjorn Bindzus was the young lad seen in the photo with Eriksen and couldn’t contain
his delight at meeting one of his heroes.
He told BT: “I 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
“I didn’t see the incident against Finland, but he looked healthy. It was really nice to see.
“I mostly watch football when the national team is playing, and here my favorite
player is without a doubt, Christian Eriksen. I’m proud of myself that I have that
image.” Creative whizz Eriksen received thousands upon thousands of get-well
messages following his cardiac arrest, which rocked the footy world.
