According to the doctor, Eriksen has to stay in the hospital for a few more days for further examinations. His condition is stable and he is conscious. “We are investigating whether a cardiac arrest caused his unconsciousness,” Kjærgaard told Danish broadcaster TV2. “The picture we have now is in line with that. I think he will definitely get back on his feet. If it was a heart attack, it’s a good sign that he’s already well conscious.”
Heart attacks are rare for people of Eriksen’s age, according to the Danish doctor, although they sometimes occur in top athletes. “There are athletes who get blood clots in their heart or who have arrhythmias. This is difficult to see, but can be caused by strenuous exercise. If there is a blood clot in the heart, it is usually accompanied by chest pain and other signs. With cardiac arrhythmias there are no warning signs and the person immediately becomes unconscious.”
