Denmark team doctor Morten Boesen says the 29-year-old's medical results have so far been normal.

"The exams that have been done so far look fine, we don't have an explanation why it happened. I can't answer that question.

"I didn't see it live, I saw it on screen when it happened. You saw the same as me. No explanation so far."
