Christian Eriksen, the Denmark midfielder who collapsed during his team's Euro 2020 opener against Finland, says he is "fine — under the circumstances."

His message posted Tuesday on Instagram was Eriksen's first communication to fans since Saturday's match when he suffered a cardiac arrest.

"Hello everyone, Big thanks for your sweet and amazing greetings and messages from all around the world. It means a lot to me and my family," Eriksen wrote.

"I'm fine — under the circumstances. I still have to go through some examinations at the hospital, but I feel OK. Now, I will cheer on the boys on the Denmark team in the next matches. Play for all of Denmark. Best, Christian."

Eriksen is still in the hospital and undergoing tests.
