The Inter player has maintained a low profile since leaving hospital on June 18, but has been seen out and about after a picture with a fan.

Christian Eriksen has been photographed in public for the first time since he was released from hospital after a heart attack during Denmark’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Finland.

The Inter midfielder was taken to Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen after collapsing during the Group B game at Parken Stadium, where he received cardioverter defibrillator treatment.

Eriksen, who was released on June 18 to complete his recovery with his family, has been seen out and about for the first time since the incident after being snapped with a fan.

After spending the most of his time after his release in Odense, the 29-year-old was seen in Tisvildeleje, about 60 kilometers from Copenhagen, before of his team’s eventual quarter-final win against the Czech Republic.

He was seen posing with a fan, Bjorn Bindzus, who was shooting an advertising at a nearby beach area. The picture was subsequently posted on Instagram.

Eriksen seems to be in good health in the picture, smiling for the camera.

According to the Danish daily BT, Bindzus stated: “I was scared and dumbfounded when I had to inquire about the photograph. However, I’m proud of myself for doing it, and I’m overjoyed today.

“We were on location for a commercial shoot when I caught a glimpse of him when we were eating lunch. As a result, I waited until he had done speaking with his girlfriend before asking him. And he immediately said yes.

“I did not see the event versus Finland, but he appeared to be in good health. It was a sight to see.

“I mostly watch football when the national team is in action, and Christian Eriksen is without a doubt my favorite player here. I’m very proud of myself for having that image.”

Denmark suffered an opening loss against Finland only hours after his fall, but have since recovered magnificently to finish a fairytale run to the Euro 2020 semi-finals.

Though they were eventually defeated by world number one Belgium in Group B, a rout of Russia qualified them for the knockout rounds, where they advanced to the quarter-finals with a 4-0 victory over Wales in the last-16.

After defeating the Czech Republic 2-1 on Friday, they will go to Wembley to play fellow host country England in the semi-finals, hoping to repeat Denmark’s exploits from Euro 1992, when they shocked the continent to win the title.
