Christian Eriksen in Good Spirits After Scare, Causes Still Unknown

Christian Eriksen spent Monday doing a series of tests and answering the people that reached out to him. As revealed by his coach, he joked around in a video conference with his teammates: “How are you doing? You are in worse shape than I am. I would be ready to practice right now.” All the exams have come back negative thus far, fueling doubts about the incident, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

Martin Schoots talked to the newspaper: “We spoke yesterday morning; he is in a fine mood. Everybody wants to understand what happened, the doctors are doing extensive tests, but they will need time. Eriksen was happy because he saw how beloved he is. He received text messages from all over the world. He was particularly impressed by those coming from Inter players and fans. He does not give up. The family wants to thank everybody. He will stay at the hospital Monday and maybe Tuesday as well. But he wishes to support his teammates against Belgium.”

Eriksen collapsed because of a cardiac arrhythmia, but the medical personnel is trying to comprehend what induced it. At this stage, a seizure reportedly seems unlikely. Denmark doctor was bleak in a presser: “He was gone, then it was like he resurrected. We do not know how we managed to do that. We can not elaborate on the causes, nobody knows for sure yet. He is certainly doing well right now, he is awake and responds in a clear and precise way.”
