Follow us on:

April 5 (Bloomberg) -- Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba has started walking again, less than three weeks after suffering cardiac arrest in a game, manager Owen Coyle said.

Muamba has been in London Chest Hospital since collapsing on the field during an F.A. Cup quarterfinal at Tottenham on March 17. It took two hours for doctors to get the soccer player’s heart working.

“Fabrice has been taking small steps, is talking and has got that big smile on his face, which we love to see,” manager Coyle said on Bolton’s website. “We’ve got to stress that he has got a long way to go but the improvement has been remarkable and long may that continue.”

Muamba celebrates his 24th birthday tomorrow. The former England under-21 national team member, who was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, is in his fourth season with Bolton.
