Christian Eriksen has been pictured for the first time since leaving hospital after his cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 last month.
The Inter Milan star collapsed during his nation's opening match at the major tournament against Finland.
After receiving life-saving treatment on the field from medics and Denmark captain Simon Kjaer, Eriksen was rushed to hospital in Copenhagen, where he quickly recovered into a 'stable' condition to the relief of football fans across the world.
He was then fitted with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) at the Rigshospitalet before returning home to Denmark six days after the incident on June 18.
The 29-year-old has since been resting with his family in Odense, but on Friday he took a visit to Tidvilde beach and posed for a photo with a young fan.
Bjorn Bindzus was the youngster seen in the snap with Eriksen, and he waxed lyrical about meeting one of his heroes afterwards.

"I was nervous and completely speechless when I had to ask about the picture," he said in an interview with B.T.
"But I'm proud that I did it and I'm very happy today.
"We were at a photoshoot for a commercial when I suddenly saw him while we were having lunch.
"So I waited to ask him until he had finished talking to his girlfriend. And he said yes right away.
"I didn't see the incident against Finland, but he looked healthy. It was really nice to see.
"I mostly watch football when the national team is playing, and here my favourite player is without a doubt Christian Eriksen. I'm proud of myself that I have that image."
