Smiling Eriksen gives thumbs up in first hospital picture of Denmark star

Christian Eriksen has said he feels "fine – under the circumstances" after medics saved his life when he collapsed during Denmark's Euro 2020 clash with Finland.

Inter midfielder Eriksen was given CPR on the pitch during the first half of Saturday's game in Copenhagen after collapsing with no other players around him.

Denmark team-mate Kasper Schmeichel reported on Monday that Eriksen was "smiling and laughing" in hospital, while team doctor Morten Boesen confirmed the 29-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest.

Boesen said Eriksen "was gone" before being resuscitated on the field.

Now Eriksen has revealed the first picture of him in hospital, giving a thumbs-up gesture.

He wrote in a message posted to the Danish Football Union (DBU) Twitter page: "Hello everyone. Big thanks for your sweet and amazing greetings and messages from all around the world. It means a lot to me and my family.
