There is a comment on reddit from a guy who claimed to be a physician. His comment is full of technical terms but basically over their career, some parts of an athlete’s heart will become overdeveloped while other parts may stay underdeveloped. This mismatch can cause some irregular rhythm and can be deadly yet undetectable until it manifests, at least with current technology.

Tldr its like cancer, there is always a chance that your heart decides to explode at any moment.

This is bullshit unless you have very specific anatomical or electrical derangements in your heart. This shouldn't happen to normal people otherwise there would be sportspeople dying at alarming rates.

Well, normal people dont overdevelop their hearts to that point.

Anyway, That’s just what I understand.

An interview with former Tottenham doctor. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/sportsnews/article-9680381/Christian-Eriksens-former-doctor-Tottenham-claims-miracle-footballer-survived.html

Christian Eriksen probably suffered a cardiac arrest but staged a remarkable recovery, according to his former cardiologist at Tottenham Hotspur.

Professor Sanjay Sharma, who put the former Tottenham midfielder through an annual battery of tests between 2013 and 2020, said Eriksen had no known history of heart problems – but that no tests were ‘foolproof.

He said the 29-year-old Denmark star appeared to have recovered ‘very quickly’ given reports that his heart had stopped for five minutes.

‘If they did aggressive CPR [cardiopulmonary resuscitation] on him and if they did have to use a defibrillator, then I would call this a primary cardiac arrest as a result of the heart going into a bad rhythm,’ Prof Sharma told The Mail on Sunday.

‘What I saw was that he ran towards the ball, completely lost his legs – clearly at that point something had gone terribly wrong – becomes floppy, hits the ground and starts fitting.’

He said the short fit was probably the result of the brain being starved of oxygen, adding: ‘The moment you hit the ground to the moment they get your heart started again is known as downtime. The longer your downtime, the worse your outlook.

‘For every minute that they don’t get you back, if you haven’t got good CPR, then the chance of you surviving goes down by about seven per cent.

‘Normally with somebody who’s had a downtime of five or six minutes, if they get them back, they’re in such a bad way that they have to be ventilated, with a tube going down their throat helping them to breathe.

‘But remember, Eriksen is a very young fit man. He is not like the elderly people who have a cardiac arrest outside Sainsbury’s. This is a guy with fantastic circulation.’

In the minutes before confirmation came that Eriksen had survived and was in a stable condition, Prof Sharma said he had been ‘praying’ he would pull through.

He explained that CPR keeps blood – and thereby oxygen – flowing to vital organs, and in particular the brain, while the heart cannot pump. The defibrillator is used to restart the heart.

Prof Sharma, a consultant cardiologist for the charity Cardiac Risk In The Young, said he had carried out annual electrocardiograms (ECGs) and ultrasound checks on Eriksen during his time at Tottenham to scan for abnormalities.

The footballer, who now plays for the Italian side Inter Milan, was also put through ‘maximal exercise tests’ to reveal any problems such as inherited heart muscle issues and electrical signalling faults.

‘From the day we signed him it was my job to screen him, and we tested him every year,’ said Prof Sharma. ‘So certainly his tests up to 2019 were completely normal with no obvious underlying cardiac fault. Every single year he was tested. I can vouch for that because I did the tests.’

When he heard that Eriksen had collapsed, Prof Sharma immediately went through the player’s test results again. ‘I thought, “Oh my God? Is there something there that we didn’t see?” But I have looked at all the test results and everything looked perfect.’

He said it was possible that Eriksen had picked up a silent heart problem since leaving Tottenham in January 2020, although Inter Milan would have carried out similar checks.

‘Obviously we’ve had Covid. Some footballers may have had sub-clinical Covid infection, which may have resulted in scarring of the heart,’ said Prof Sharma.

Can't remember the last time I was so afraid when watching football, probably Cisse's injury against China. But thank fuck he's okay, life is so much more than football.

I didn't dare say it yesterday but now he seems to be out of danger i can admit it. This incident took me back to 2003 when i saw Marc Vivien Foe die on the pitch. Thankfully we had a happy ending this time.

Doctor Volpi at GdS: "Eriksen in the coming days will be subjected to in-depth examinations. There had never been any episode that, even remotely, had hinted at a problem, neither at Tottenham, nor at Inter.

I am 100% sure he has played his last game of football ever. You don't recover from something like that. I see some people are mentioning Daley Blind, but that is not comparable imo

this was the most horrible thing i saw live on tv, but we should not assume anything yet. Lets see what the doctors will say even happened and caused this. If he has a heart problem, or any other serious problem, then of course, i wouldnt want him to play.

I think he can fully recover as the treatment was quick, the thing is nobody will allow him to play knowing this can happen again.

It all depends on what caused the collapse, if it was a cardiac issue it’s most likely he’s done but if it’s just some weird freak occurrence then he should be back as long as he wants to come back. After this I have a feeling he’ll call it quits though.

And so what? Nobody knows yet.

A family of two small children still got their dad and a young mom still got her man.

Football is just a fucking ball game.

Of course I would love to see him back on the pitch again but honestly I don't find it important right know. What is important is to make sure that he is stable and then next to let the doctors sort out what is wrong.

this is really one of the weirdest season ever... wining finally a scudetto after many years, our owners are broke and conte is gone, we probably have to sell 1-2 players and now we probably lost one of our most important players after a serious collapse...
But sure im happy that he's alive, the moment we knew that he's ok it was an amazing feeling because i was fearing the worst in this moments. For a fan, watching a player die is already horrible. But if it's a player of your club is simply worse. It would not feel the same again watching Inter for me, it's terrible.

UEFA gave Denmark two choices. To either continue the match last night or to play it today at 12.00. How should the Danish players be able to sleep and be prepared already for the next day?

If it was due to Coronavirus, then the match would have been postponed for two days according to UEFAs rules.

How the fuck can Coronavirus be more important than this? A teammate struggling for his life on the pitch is less important than positive Corona tests...

Fuck UEFA. Fucking idiots.

It was because of the way you said it. And that your words didn't proof to be right is known already since you declared him dead yesterday.

For now I’m just so happy he is feeling well. It was properly the “best” place to have an incident like this, CE was immediately taken care of by world class medics and the best hospital in Denmark is like 500m away for the stadium. Now the coming days/weeks will be full of tests and analysis to decide whether being part of elite football is an option or not, I sure do hope he will make a full recovery, I had 4 tickets to the game last night, I lost the tickets 4 weeks ago due to corona restrictions, I was somehow happy I was at home last night and not at the stadium.
