Consultant cardiologist Dr Sam Mohiddin has warned people not to expect Fabrice Muamba to make a rapid recovery.

Mohiddin, who has been in charge of Muamba since his admission to the London Chest Hospital, admitted the Bolton midfielder's progress had been extraordinary since he suffered a cardiac arrest at Tottenham on Saturday evening that meant he effectively died for 78 minutes after his heart stopped beating.

However, it may be some time before Muamba completes a return to full health, and Mohiddin said: "Fabrice has continued to demonstrate positive signs of recovery and he has not only exceeded our expectations but also our hopes in the way he's recovered. But this remains very early in what could be a lengthy recovery period."
