CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN is in a “stable” condition and “awake” in hospital after collapsing during Denmark’s Euro 2020 opener with Finland.

The former Spurs midfielder, 29, received CPR as he was surrounded by distraught team-mates after falling to the floor in yesterday’s match.

Medical staff raced onto the pitch to give emergency treatment to the Inter Milan ace as his team-mates formed a protective shield around him.

Denmark’s captain Simon Kjaer was hailed as a “hero” after placing Eriksen in the recovery position while unconscious and giving CPR to his friend before medics arrived.

Eriksen was seen conscious and sitting up on a stretcher while receiving oxygen as he was taken from the pitch just after 6pm.
