Former Arsenal midfielder Kristoffer Olsson on ventilator in hospital after collapsing at home

Former Arsenal midfielder Kristoffer Olsson is on a ventilator in hospital after collapsing at home due to a brain condition.

The Sweden midfielder’s current club, Midtjylland, announced in a statement on Tuesday that the 28-year-old has been in hospital since February 20. He is currently on a ventilator and being treated by leading medical experts from Denmark.

Midtjylland said in a statement on their official website: “In view of the increasing rumours and speculation that are circulating about the reason for Kristoffer Olsson’s absence in the recent period, we are forced to make this announcement to the public.

The 28-year-old Swedish international lost consciousness in his home on Tuesday 20 February and was transferred to Aarhus University Hospital, where he has been admitted and on a ventilator.

Kristoffer Olsson is affected by an apparently acute disease related to the brain, which is not caused by self-harm of any kind, nor is the cause due to external factors.

“A team of Denmark’s leading medical experts is currently working hard to make a diagnosis and initiate the right treatment.
