Francis Lalanne, like other figures elsewhere in the world, has suggested a link between Danish footballer Chr



"Vaccine?

"The interrogative tweet signed Francis Lalanne shocked more than one Internet user on Saturday evening.

As the Dane Christian Eriksen collapsed in the middle of the Euro football match against Finland, the French artist suggested a parallel between the vaccination against Covid-19 and the footballer's heart disease, thus attracting a round of insults on social networks.

Suspicions swept away a few hours later by the director of Inter Milan, where the 29-year-old Dane officiates.

What happened ?

In the 43rd minute of Denmark-Finland (0-1), the Danish Christian Eriksen collapsed on the lawn.

The medical staff of the national team, quickly supported by rescuers, performed cardiac massage.

The latest news is reassuring: the young athlete is awake, "in stable condition" and "remains hospitalized for additional examinations", announced the Danish federation on Sunday evening.

Shortly after, the French artist Francis Lalanne published his tweet: “Vaccin?

", Accompanied by an article from the Team entitled" Christian Eriksen victim of discomfort during Denmark-Finland ".

Francis Lalanne, you're shit.

Faced with many indignant Internet users, the singer deleted his publication, replacing it with this message: "You should not ask the question if someone has health problems because of a vaccine in France otherwise you have a whole horde of haters coming!

Mind-blowing!

What has become of France?

Why does Francis Lalanne make a link with the vaccine?

The artist has been very virulent since the start of the health crisis on the issues of vaccines, the wearing of masks or even restrictive measures.

"We do not want us to be given injections of which we know nothing, except that they are

perhaps

dangerous

and

perhaps

that is enough", he proclaimed during an anti-mask demonstration. -may.

Also, he will "never" be vaccinated against Covid-19, he said on Friday on the set of "Grandes Gueules", specifying that he was "not an anti-vaccine" for all that. .

No wonder, then, that he makes a potential link between vaccines and Eriksen's heart failure.

According to his tweets, Francis Lalanne indeed seems to believe that the Dane, because he plays for an Italian club (Inter Milan), has been vaccinated like all 26 players of the Italian selection.

Except that at the Euro, each federation has its own rules.

But Christian Eriksen plays for Denmark and he has not been vaccinated.

Inter Milan's response to the rumors

Francis Lalanne is far from being the only one to have propagated this idea. Inter Milan director Giuseppe Marotta quickly silenced the rumors that were starting to circulate everywhere on social networks. Christian Eriksen "did not have the Covid-19 and was not vaccinated either," he told Rai Sport, recalling that the player was under the direction of Danish medical staff, but that the Inter "was in contact with them". The Italian club's doctor added that the player had not shown any previous signs of a health problem.

Even if he had been vaccinated, the benefit / risk ratio of products authorized in the European Union is still favorable for vaccines. As of May 1, five cases of myocarditis have been detected in people who received the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine (out of more than 13,660,000 injections as of April 22), but for the time being, no direct link with the vaccine has been made. could be established. In addition, “the majority of the adverse effects” detected on people who have received this vaccine “are expected and not serious”, recalls the National Agency for the Safety of Medicines (ANSM).

This is not the first time that a player has collapsed in the middle of a game.

The impressive images of Saturday night have awakened the memories of the former English player Fabrice Muamba, struck down in 2012 before half-time in an FA Cup quarter-final between Tottenham and Bolton - his club -, while he was 24 years old.

"It reminded me of emotions that you want to suppress as far as possible and that you don't want to relive," he told the BBC.

In 2003, Cameroonian Marc-Vivien Foé, 28, collapsed on the pitch in Lyon.

After this deadly tragedy, Fifa had strengthened the measures for monitoring players and made the presence of defibrillators in the stadiums compulsory.

Which probably saved Christian Eriksen on Saturday.

In summary :

  • Francis Lalanne draws a parallel between the vaccination against Covid-19 and the heart disease suffered by footballer Christian Eriksen on Saturday evening.

    Why does he appear to believe that the athlete has been vaccinated?

    Because Eriksen plays for Inter Milan in Italy and the 26 players of the Italian national team have all been vaccinated for the Euro, explains the French artist on Twitter.

  • Except that the Dane Christian Eriksen plays his Euro under the colors of Denmark and is therefore not subject to the same rules as the Italian federation.

    The athlete has not been vaccinated against Covid-19, confirmed the director of Inter Milan, who is "in contact" with Danish medical staff.
