Fabrice Muamba got out of bed for the first time this weekend as he continues to make encouraging progress in his recovery from a cardiac arrest.
It is now nine days since the Bolton midfielder collapsed during the first-half of an FA Cup quarter-final at Tottenham. And the latest update brought more positive news.
"Fabrice Muamba remains in intensive care at The London Chest Hospital where his condition is serious but stable," said a statement released by Barts and The London NHS Trust and Bolton Wanderers Football Club.
