Christian Eriksen gives update on condition and thanks fans for support

Eriksen looks to be in good spirits and though he can't play the rest of the tournament, he'll be cheering on his teammates all the way home

Football breathed a collective sigh of relief once we saw the first images of Christian Eriksen sitting upright and even more so after he put out an initial message to confirm that he was ok following his sudden collapse during the game against Finland.

Now though, he has given a further update on his condition as well, in which he thanks the fans for all of their "sweet and amazing [...] messages", stating how much it means to him and his family.

As you can see, he wants to reiterate: "I'm fine - under the circumstances", at least. Though it has been confirmed he suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch, it still remains how the failure came about whether a larger issue needs to be determined.

He goes on to insist that despite having to say in hospital for "some examinations", he will continue to "cheer on the boys on the Denmark team in the next matches", before issuing a rallying cry to their supporters and football fans to "Play for all of Denmark".

Once again, we're just glad he's ok and it's truly touching and powerful to come out to back his teammates when there are much bigger things going on right now.

All the best, Christian.
