Episode 23 of Sport Unlocked, the podcast dissecting the week's sports news issues with interviews and insight from Rob Harris, Martyn Ziegler and Tariq Panja.
On the agenda on June 18, 2021:
- Christian Eriksen's cardiac arrest at Euro 2020. We interview Dr. Zafar Iqbal, head of sports medicine at Crystal Palace, who is chairman of the Premier League doctors' group, on Eriksen's collapse, his recovery and the heart checks in football. He also discusses coronavirus restrictions ongoing into next season and vaccines for players.
- England players have been criticised for taking a knee by Britain's Home Secretary Priti Patel. Former sports minister Tracey Crouch does not like what she's hearing from her fellow Conservative Party MPs. She also updates us on the fan-led review of football governance she is overseeing after the collapse of the Super League.
- Euro 2020 and sponsor protests by players. Should Cristiano Ronaldo have removed the Coca-Cola bottle.
- And inside the doping case involving American runner Shelby Houlihan and why she's blaming burritos for a positive test that could end her Olympic hopes.
