A leading heart specialist has cast doubts on whether Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba will ever play professional football again.

Peter Weissberg, the Medical Director of the British Heart Foundation, believes Muamba's sudden collapse during the FA Cup quarter-final against Tottenham at White Hart Lane earlier in the month means he can never truly be cleared to compete in the future.

He told Press Association Sport: "It is not possible to say but I think it is likely he would be advised not to play again because most conditions like this are a combination of physical activity and an underlying tendency to have a cardiac arrest."
