Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba has revealed he could only walk five paces after regaining consciousness following his shock cardiac arrest.

The Barclays Premier League star's heart stopped beating naturally for 78 minutes after he collapsed in a heap during Bolton's FA Cup quarter-final at Tottenham on March 17. He was unconscious for three days despite feeling "particularly fit" before the incident, and awoke to find he could only manage a handful of paces when he was helped to his feet.

He told The Sun: "I couldn't believe how wrecked I felt. I only managed about five paces from my bed, but felt like I'd just run the London marathon."
