It was in the 43rd minute when referee Antony Tailor noticed something unusual in the game between Denmark and Finland in the Euro 2020. Inter Milan attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen had collapsed down and was in danger.
Danish captain Simon Kjaer was the first person to respond to the distress call and tried to rescue Eriksen from swallowing his tongue. He then told his teammates to surround the 29-year-old to shield cameras from recording what was going around the place.
The gesture has received a lot of applause from the football fraternity and everybody has called the team to win the game that was initially suspended in respect to the earlier incident.
The game will however continue as UEFA has said Christian Eriksen is out of danger and has even requested the players from both teams to continue with the game. The game will have four minutes added time with only 5 minutes break before resuming for the second half.
Here are the tributes from football fans:
