BBC criticised for showing footage of Christian Eriksen receiving CPR on pitch

The BBC has been criticised for broadcasting footage of Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen receiving treatment after collapsing on the pitch during the team’s Euro 2020 match against Finland.

The 29-year-old stumbled in the 43rd minute and then fell to the turf as fans and players looked on shocked.

Medics rushed to treat the Inter Milan midfielder and quickly began giving CPR as the cameras kept rolling.

Players formed a wall to shield Eriksen as he received first aid, but fans online noted that the medics could still easily be seen performing the treatment.

“CUT TO THE STUDIO FFS!!!” tweeted Ian Wright, the pundit and former England forward.

The BBC apologised for broadcasting the footage and wished Eriksen a full recovery.

“We apologise to anyone who was upset by the images broadcast,” a spokesperson said.
