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."
