Crown Princess Mary of Denmark has released a heartfelt statement to Danish footballer Christian Eriksen, who collapsed during a match on Saturday afternoon. The royal was attending the game in person when she, and thousands of football fans in the stadium and more watching from home, witnessed Christian fall during Denmark's Euro 2020 match against Finland.
Onsite paramedics performed CPR on the footballer before he was transferred to hospital where he is currently stable.

The family are keen on sports, and over the February half term released a fun video of them playing ice hockey using a frozen lake as a makeshift pitch.
The children were all heard having a fun time, cheering as they skated around on the ice.
The Danish royal family's pet border collie Grace can also be seen running around with the young royals. Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary welcomed the pup in 2017 after the passing of their previous dog, Ziggy.
