BBC apologises for live coverage of Christian Eriksen's 'upsetting' on-field treatment

The 29-year-old collapsed to the ground at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen shortly before half-time, leaving players from both teams in clear distress.

Medics soon rushed onto the pitch and began administering CPR.

His wife, Sabrina Kvist Jensen was in the stadium at the time, and was seen visibly distressed by the incident.

The BBC was criticised for continuing to show footage of the medical treatment and Eriksen’s upset wife, but the corporation has since apologised to viewers.

They said in a statement: “Everyone at the BBC is hoping Christian Eriksen makes a full recovery.

“We apologise to anyone who was upset by the images broadcast.

“In-stadium coverage is controlled by Uefa as the host broadcaster, and as soon as the match was suspended, we took our coverage off air as quickly as possible.”
