Muamba praises God for 'miracle'

Published Add your comment

Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba has relived the dramatic moment he "died" in front of thousands of stunned football fans and described his astonishing recovery as "more than a miracle".

The Premier League star's heart stopped beating naturally for 78 minutes after he collapsed in an unconscious heap during Bolton's FA Cup quarter-final at Tottenham on March 17. But the devout Christian, 24, stunned doctors after coming back to life and was fit enough to walk out of hospital just a month after the ordeal.

In an interview with The Sun, Muamba said: "Someone up there was watching over me. What happened to me was really more than a miracle. On the morning of the game I prayed with my father and asked God to protect me - and he didn't let me down. I am walking proof of the power of prayer."
