Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba was on Sunday morning critically ill in intensive care at the heart attack centre of the London Chest Hospital.

The 23-year-old collapsed in the 41st minute of Bolton's FA Cup quarter-final against Tottenham on Saturday night, with the match abandoned after the player received treatment on the pitch from paramedics. Bolton manager Owen Coyle accompanied Muamba to the hospital and later emerged to give an update on the player's progress.

He told Sky News: "Fabrice is critically ill. The next 24 hours are going to be absolutely crucial."
