Bolton boss Owen Coyle has confirmed Fabrice Muamba has been walking around in hospital as the Wanderers midfielder continues his remarkable recovery following his on-field collapse last month.
Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest in the first half of the Trotters' FA Cup quarter-final at Tottenham on March 17, with the game subsequently being abandoned.
Asked on Thursday morning for an update on the player, Coyle said: "He has done some short periods of walking down the corridor he is in as part of the unit, staying in intensive care. He is taking steps, talking and has that big smile which we love to see, so he is certainly progressing the right way."
