Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba is showing "small signs of improvement" but remains "critically ill", according to the London Chest Hospital.

It is now almost 48 hours since the 23-year-old collapsed during his side's FA Cup quarter-final with Tottenham at White Hart Lane after suffering a cardiac arrest.

Medical staff took two hours to get Muamba's heart working again, but in a statement this afternoon, it was revealed there have been further small reasons for optimism.
