Harry Redknapp revealed his Tottenham players were staying positive following the trauma of Fabrice Muamba's cardiac arrest as they look to "get back on the bike" and return to action in the Barclays Premier League against Stoke on Wednesday night.

On Monday night it was confirmed the 23-year-old was able to answer questions and speak in both French and English, which represents a dramatic improvement for the Bolton midfielder, whose heart stopped for two hours following his collapse during the first half of his side's FA Cup quarter-final at White Hart Lane on Saturday evening.

"I spoke to (Bolton manager) Owen Coyle late last night, and he said they had had as good a day as could have been expected," said Redknapp. "All the lads are buoyed by the news which has come through, things have obviously picked up."
