FA delight as duo leave hospital

Published Add your comment

The Football Association has revealed its "absolute delight" at the release of both Fabrice Muamba and Trevor Francis from hospital.

Muamba, 24, was discharged from the London Chest Hospital on Monday, just 30 days after the midfielder was admitted following his cardiac arrest on the pitch during Bolton's FA Cup quarter-final against Tottenham. His release came on the same afternoon as former England striker Francis, 57, was also allowed home by Birmingham Heartlands Hospital after suffering a suspected heart attack on Friday.

FA general secretary Alex Horne told Press Association Sport: "We're absolutely delighted with the news that both Fabrice Muamba and Trevor Francis have been discharged from hospital. It goes without saying that the football family has been united in wishing them well and hopefully this is the start of a journey back to full health."
