“After Christian has been through different heart examinations it has been decided that he should have an ICD (heart starter). This device is necessary after a cardiac attack due to rhythm disturbances,” said National Team doctor Morten Boesen.
“Christian has accepted the solution and the plan has moreover been confirmed by specialists nationally and internationally who all recommend the same treatment,” he said.
“We encourage everybody to give Christian and his family peace and privacy the following time,” he said.
