The award also recognizes Denmark's doctor, physio, and team captain Simon Kjaer who began CPR on Eriksen.

Aleksander Ceferin, president of UEFA, stated in a statement that "This year the President's Award transcends soccer."

It serves as an essential and constant reminder of how precious life truly is, and it puts everything in perspective.

Eriksen had a pacemaker implanted in his heart that prevents fatal cardiac arrests. It releases a jolt which restores a normal rhythm.

His future is uncertain as regulations in Italy prevent him from playing for Inter.

Eriksen thanked the medical staff for their help and said, "You did an amazing job and saved me from death."

"Also, a huge thanks to Simon, my friend and captain, and my teammates in Denmark for your support on 12 June as well as afterwards."
