At the start of Sweden's victory match against Egypt, team captain Jim Gottfridsson stuck his left hand in an opponent's shirt and left the field grimacing.
A moment later he appeared, but then with a wrapped hand.
He watched the rest of the game from the sidelines.
After the match, Gottfridsson was x-rayed and it was found that he had suffered a fracture in his hand.
"Suffering with Jim"
Jim Gottfridsson is one of the world's best handball players and that he now misses the rest of the tournament means a big break for Sweden.
Now two months await without a game for the big star.
- I suffer an awful lot with Jim, who has prepared and done everything he could to come as prepared as possible.
He has had a very good tournament so far, so it is clear that it is difficult for us, but we have a very strong squad that will do everything to win the semi-final, says national team captain Glenn Solberg in a statement on the national handball team's website.
In the semi-final on Friday, Sweden faces France in Stockholm.
In the second match, Denmark and Spain meet in Gdansk.
