Belgium paid tribute to player Christian Eriksen in the Group B match against Denmark by stopping the play in the 10th minute.

During the 10th minute, the game was stopped for a huge round of applause all in tribute of the player. Eriksen did confirm that he is now recovering and is ‘fine – under the circumstances.’ It was also confirmed that Eriksen will be fitted with a defibrillator implant which is a necessary device after cardiac arrest due to rhythm disturbances.

The summer heat is seriously affecting all of us… including this cat. The feline had the ingenious idea of seeking a cool shelter from the heat waves in a supermarket fridge.

The cat can be seen walking among the milk cartons and cheeses, completely unbothered by the shoppers. How the cat managed to get in and make its way all the way into the fridge is unknown, but we commend it for its ability to improvise!
