Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen, who collapsed on the ground during his country's opening Euro 2020 match on Saturday, has shared a cheerful picture of himself from the hospital on his Instagram handle, saying that he is doing fine.

Alongside a picture of himself smiling and posing from the hospital bed with a thumbs up, Christian Eriksen wrote, "Big thanks for your sweet and amazing greetings and messages from all around the world. It means a lot to me and my family. I'm fine -- under the circumstances, I still have to go through some examinations at the hospital, but I feel okay. Now, I will cheer on the boys on the Denmark team in the next matches. Play for all of Denmark." In a shocking turn of events, the Danish football player had collapsed on the field during the 43rd minute of Denmark's Group B game against Finland in Copenhagen on Saturday.

Medical personnel immediately administered CPR as Eriksen lay unconscious for nearly 15 minutes. He was then shifted to a hospital and Denmark's team doctor confirmed that he had suffered a cardiac arrest. Claiming that there was no explanation for why he collapsed during the match, the doctor said, "He was gone, and we did cardiac resuscitation. How close were we? I don't know. We got him back after one defib (defibrillation), so that's quite fast. There's no explanation so far. That is also one of the reasons that he is still in the hospital."
