The first image of Christian Eriksen in public has emerged after he was discharged from hospital last month.
The Denmark midfielder suffered a cardiac arrest during his side’s 1-0 defeat against Finland at Euro 2020 on June 12. He was resuscitated and taken to the Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen.
Following treatment, the Danish FA confirmed Eriksen returned home on June 18 after undergoing a successful operation to have a cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) implanted.
The 29-year-old had been resting in the city of Odense over the past few weeks but on Friday he was pictured with a young fan at Tidvilde Strand beach in northern Denmark, which is around 60km from the capital Copenhagen.
Bjorn Bindzus, who posted a selfie with Eriksen on Instagram, told Danish newspaper 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.
