After arriving at the airport, handball commentator Daniel Hoglund, 35, was asked not to board the plane.
– It would have been better to put it this way, Daniel Høglund tells VG.
In the morning hours of Wednesday, Viaplay’s profile posted a photo of a very swollen right hand.
He told VG that he had a long-planned operation on Friday. Then only the fluid buildup should be removed.
– Then I think there is an infection in the hand. It’s swollen and very hot. I felt a little better yesterday, so I thought it’d probably go down. Only when I came to Gardermoen and met the others were like, “This doesn’t look good.”
Høglund sent a picture to the operating room doctor and got a nice enough answer at 5:30 in the morning. Then the message was clear:
– Don’t go on the plane. You have to turn around, says Høglund.
He was due to comment on Norway’s opening match against Kazakhstan on Friday. Now there is a high probability that he will go without Høglund – at least with his presence.
– I think so, I can’t understand anything else. I’m ready to smoke, but of course I hope to get to the opening match. Learn more during the day.
How was the message that you had to change conveyed?
– Of course it was embarrassing, but getting on the plane was disgusting, so I’m really glad someone made a decision.
– If I were 20, I would probably be desperate and sorry, but it’s a long championship, so I’ll probably get off as soon as possible.
The tournament is the first handball tournament since it became Taken to drive under the influence of alcohol For the second time earlier this fall.
– It will be an extra special tournament for me. It would be special, but in a good way, says Holland – and adds:
I don’t intend to lie down and drop the entire tournament.
Now a trip to the doctor is waiting for you. At the same time, the business owner may need to find an alternate plan for the tournament.
– It is too early to say how we will solve this. You should spend the day looking at what Daniel looks like and making a plan, Christian Uma, sports director at NENT Norway, wrote in an SMS to VG.
