Is there reason for fit and young athletes collapsing so much during games?

Young and fit professional athletes are collapsing on the fields and courts and some wonder what could be the reason for that. Just over the last year, we have witnessed many scary scenes accross all sports. Some believe there is something more to young and fit athletes collapsing during games and practices.

Those conspiracy theorist suggest something is being injected into our food but there is no proof for those claims. A month ago, Barcelona striker Sergio Aguero was taken to hospital for a cardiac exam after suffering chest pain and dizziness.

"I was told he was feeling a bit dizzy. I have just learned that he was taken to hospital and I can't say much more until I know," Barcelona's caretaker coach Sergi Barjuan said after the match. The Christian Eriksen scene gave chills to fans One of the scariest scenes ever seen on a football pitch happened at the Euro 2020 when Christian Eriksen collapsed following a heart attack.

“We spoke this morning [Sunday]. He was making jokes, he was in a good mood, I thought he was well,” Eriksen's agent Martin Schoots said after everything ended well. “We all want to understand what happened to him, and he does too: the doctors are making some in-depth tests, but we’ll need some time.

“He was happy, because he understood how much love he has around him. He received messages from the whole world. And he was particularly struck by those in the Inter environment: not just his team-mates who spoke to him in their private chat, but also the fans.

“Christian won’t give up. Him, and his family, want to make sure that everybody receives their thanks. Half the world contacted us, everyone was worried. Now he only needs to rest, his wife and parents are with him.

“Even tomorrow [Monday], he will remain under observation, maybe Tuesday as well. But in any case he wants to support his team-mates against Belgium”. Denmnar's team doctor Morten Boesen said Eriksen was gone.

″[Eriksen] was gone,” Denmark’s team doctor Boesen said. “We did cardiac resuscitation, it was a cardiac arrest. How close were we to losing him? I don’t know but we got him back after one defib, so that’s quite fast."

Eriksen thanked everyone for their support after the scary situation. “Big thanks for your sweet and amazing greetings and messages from around the world,” he wrote in a message tweeted out by Denmark’s soccer federation, along with a photo of a smiling Eriksen giving a thumbs-up. “It means a lot to me and my family."
