The club and Barts Health NHS Trust announced the 24-year-old had left The London Chest Hospital on Monday. He had been recovering in the east London hospital since suffering a cardiac arrest on the pitch during Bolton's FA Cup tie with Tottenham at White Hart Lane on March 17.

Muamba said: "I am naturally very pleased to be discharged from hospital and would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to every single member of staff at The London Chest Hospital who have played a part in my care."
