Published Add your comment

Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba, whose heart stopped for 78 minutes after he collapsed during a live televised match, will receive an Honorary Doctorate later on Friday.

Muamba, 24, will be honoured by the University of Bolton at its degree congregation ceremony for students, their friends and families to celebrate graduation day.

In March this year during the first half of an FA Cup quarter-final between Bolton and Tottenham, Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest. Millions of TV viewers watched as medical staff rushed to his aid with the player receiving lengthy treatment on the pitch.
