Several of Eriksen's teammates had continued to surround him as he received medical attention, screening him from cameras and the spectators gathered in the ground.

Kasper Schmeichel was seen in discussions with a woman believed to Eriksen's wife shortly before the BBC cut the broadcast and went back to the studio.
