UPDATE:: A series of photos are currently circulating on social media which show Christian Eriksen being stretchered off the pitch surrounded by his team mates.

In the photos, he appears to be alive and conscious after collapsing on the pitch and receiving prolonged treatment and CPR from medical staff.

DENMARK midfielder Christian Eriksen received CPR on the pitch after collapsing during his country’s Euro 2020 game against Finland in Copenhagen.

Inter Milan player Eriksen dropped to the ground at the Parken Stadium shortly before half-time, leaving players from both teams in clear distress.

English referee Anthony Taylor called medics on to the pitch and Eriksen underwent prolonged treatment.

A tweet from UEFA confirmed the Group B match had been suspended due to a medical emergency.

Team-mates formed a shield around the former Tottenham man, while fans inside the stadium were clearly stunned by the incident, with some pictured in tears.
