Fabrice Muamba Discharged, Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba was finally discharged from a London hospital on Monday following his recovery from a cardiac arrest on the pitch.
The 24-year-old was left fighting for his life after collapsing during the first half of Bolton’s FA Cup quarter-final at Tottenham on March 17, which was subsequently abandoned.
The Kinshasa-born star’s heart stopped for 78 minutes as medics battled to keep him alive at the stadium and then in the London Chest Hospital, but he has since made rapid progress and will now be taking it easy with his family.
“I am naturally very pleased to be discharged from hospital and would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to every single member of staff at The London Chest Hospital who have played a part in my care,” Muamba said in a statement.
“Their dedication, professionalism and expertise is simply amazing and I will forever be in their debt. I also wish to say thank you to all the many well-wishers who have sent thousands of messages of support.
“Now I am out of hospital, I am looking forward to continuing my recovery and spending precious time with my family.”
A spokesman for the local health trust confirmed that Muamba had been discharged and all their staff wished him the very best in his bid to return to playing football again.
His discharge from hospital comes two days after the death of Italian footballer Piermario Morosini, aged just 25, who suffered a heart-attack while playing for Livorno against Pescara in the second-tier Serie B.
