Christian Eriksen was in Tidfelde, Denmark, where he was filming a young boy. In the photo taken that day, Eriksen poses in front of the camera with a smile, noting that the Danish captain’s recovery is going well.

It was Eriksen who collapsed on the field in the European Football Championship group match against the Finns, his heart stopped and he had to be revived. Two days later, I took a picture of him in his hospital bed, said he was better, and then a defibrillator was implanted in his chest to prevent a similar situation.

The photo was taken by chance of the footballer: the boy who posted it, Bjorn Bendzus, was on the beach on an ad campaign when he saw Eriksen on the beach. He gathered up his courage and addressed his pet and asked for a selfie. And the Inter Milan footballer said yes without thinking.

Bognar later disappeared from the screen, then apologized, citing the shock in his announcement.
