Gabby Logan says collapse of Christian Eriksen ‘stirred up memories’ of late brother

Gabby, who is best known for presenting Final Score and The Premier League Show, argued it’s too “simplistic” to say one has to choose between football and someone’s life, as the discussion moved to professional footballers suffering cardiac arrest.

She also pointed to how screening for health conditions in young footballers has improved since Daniel’s death, as well as the use of defibrillators.

“Leeds United had just won the league that year, and Daniel hadn’t been screened,” Gabby said.

“You might not catch a young athlete’s condition every week, it might be one a month, but isn’t that worth pursuing.”
