The 23-year-old collapsed on the pitch whilst suffering a cardiac arrest in the 41st minute of Bolton’s FA Cup quarter-final against Spurs.
The match was abandoned after the player received treatment on the pitch from paramedics.

The former England Under 21 international collapsed on the pitch in view of thousands of Bolton and Tottenham fans while play went ahead upfield for a few brief moments. The medical staff was on the scene in seconds and tried to resuscitate him with a defibrillator.

Bolton manager Owen Coyle accompanied Muamba to the hospital before giving an update on the former England Under 21 international’s condition.

Coyle said: “Fabrice is critically ill. The next 24 hours are going to be absolutely crucial.”
“We’ve obviously been inundated with people wishing him well and we hope that if everybody can pray strongly tonight that Fabrice is able to recover.

Footballers are super fit athletes and Fabrice’s heart attack came as a shock to his colleagues, fans, and sent shockwaves throughout the sporting world. His condition surprisingly went undetected and football now has many health and safety questions to answer.

Footballers have a very hectic and physically challenging schedule. They are more active than all other sportsmen because of the demands of the sport and the number of games they play in a very short timeframe.

Get well soon Fabrice!
