EXCLUSIVE: Tottenham's Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg hailed as a 'hero' after rushing to help collapsed man outside stadium on Saturday night - just months after he witnessed Denmark team-mate Christian Eriksen's cardiac arrest at Euro 2020
- Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg was praised by onlookers as he raced out of his car
- The Tottenham star offered his help to the stricken individual on Saturday night
- The man was treated by medical staff before being transferred to nearby North Middlesex Hospital
- Hojbjerg was Christian Eriksen's Denmark team-mate when he suffered a cardiac arrest during Euro 2020
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg rushed to the aid of a collapsed man outside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday night as the midfielder was confronted with another distressing health drama.
The 26-year-old Spurs midfielder — who was playing for Denmark when his team-mate Christian Eriksen suffered his harrowing collapse at Euro 2020 — was praised by worried onlookers in the moments following the 3-0 defeat by Manchester United, racing out of his car to offer his help to the stricken individual on the perimeter of Tottenham’s home ground.
Having played the full 90 minutes against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, whose emphatic victory cost Nuno Espirito Santo his job, Hojbjerg encountered the upsetting episode as he drove out of the stadium and stopped after seeing the man.

Onlookers complimented Hojbjerg for remaining at the scene and hailed him as a ‘hero’ — but Hojbjerg is understood to have played down his role, insisting he was simply doing what anyone else would do.
The London Ambulance Service was called to the incident but an emergency vehicle was not required as there was already one on site.
The man was treated by medical staff before being transferred to nearby North Middlesex Hospital.

Sportsmail has contacted the hospital to obtain an update on the man’s condition, but they were unable to comment due to confidentiality protocols.
The episode comes two weeks after a supporter collapsed at St James’ Park during Tottenham’s 3-2 win over Newcastle in which Hojbjerg played.
Eric Dier and Sergio Reguilon’s quick thinking then helped save the fan’s life.
