Eriksen suffers cardiac arrest
Inter Milan midfielder and ex Tottenham player, Christian Eriksen suffered a heart attack during a Euro 2020 match between Demark and Finland earlier in the week. The incident shook the entire sports world to its very foundations.
Several sports personalities and well-meaning individuals took to social media to show their support for the 29-year-old Danish footballer.
Christian Eriksen has now been discharged from hospital after a successful operation where he was fitted with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (heart starter).
He may never play professional football again, according to a leading sports Cardiologist.
Ronaldo snubs Coca-cola
Cristiano Ronaldo raised eyebrows during Portugal’s first Euro 2020 press conference when he put away two bottles of Coca-Cola and replaced them with a bottle of water. He then raised the water up and shouted, “drink water instead.”
The act drew varying reactions from users across social media.
Coca-Cola, an Euro 2020 sponsor, saw its shares drop by about $5 billion following Ronaldo’s widely broadcasted disapproving gesture.
Well, as is apparent, Cristiano Ronaldo wants us to drink water instead of soda. The Portuguese ace forward does not drink soda.
