Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest while playing in Denmark's opening Euro 2020 fixture against Finland on June 12. After receiving emergency CPR on the pitch when his heart stopped beating, Eriksen then had to spend six days in hospital. 

Fortunately, the Inter Milan midfielder recovered, and is now fitted with an ICD heart-starting device in case he suffers the same problem again in the future. He also managed to visit the Denmark squad upon his release from hospital, the Danish Football Union confirmed.
