Denmark and Finland fans sang Christian Eriksen's name after he collapsed on the pitch today (12 June). Watch here:
In the moving footage, Finland fans can be heard chanting 'Christian!', before the Danish reply 'Eriksen!'.
The Danish midfielder collapsed shortly before half-time in the Group B Euro 2020 match at the Parken Stadium.
His teammates then formed a ring around the 29-year-old as he appeared to receive CPR. The players then left the pitch as the feed was cut.
UEFA has since confirmed that he has stabilised in hospital, with the Danish Football Association adding that he is 'awake'.
Eriksen is a talisman for his country and played for Tottenham Hotspur between 2013 and 2020, before moving to Inter Milan last summer. Football players, fans and clubs across the world have been praying for him:
Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas - who is covering the tournament as a pundit for BBC - said: "You realise that it is just a game. We need to enjoy every second and have passion for it but there are things that don't matter anymore. More important is his health.
"Enjoy what you have in life and be blessed. That is it. This is a big shock and a reminder for all of us."
The match has now restarted, and speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, Pat Nevin said: "The Denmark players must have been given some relief that Christian Eriksen has recovered, in comparison to where he was, because if there was any suggestion he was in major danger, they wouldn't have wanted to play.
"They must have got some good - and positive - news from the medics back at the hospital."
