Denmark’s Christian Eriksen will be fitted with a heart-starting device following his collapse on the pitch during Euro 2020.

The 29-year-old midfielder suffered cardiac arrest in his side’s defeat by Finland in Copenhagen on Saturday.

Danish team doctor Morten Boesen said the ICD – implantable cardioverter defibrillator – is “necessary due to rhythm disturbances”.

Eriksen remains in hospital but says he is “fine under the circumstances”.
