Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba has revealed he took part in an impromptu game of football while on holiday in May, two months after collapsing during an FA Cup tie against Tottenham with a cardiac arrest.
Muamba was rushed to the London Chest Hospital and doctors took 78 minutes to restart his heart following the incident at White Hart Lane in March, with his eventual recovery described as a miracle. The 24-year-old has made a remarkable recovery since then but it is still not known when, or if, former England Under-21 international will be able to return to professional football.
However, Muamba revealed to CNN that he played some football while on holiday with his fiancee Shauna Magunda in Dubai in May. "I was on holiday and I was staying in a hotel and there were quite a few footballers in the hotel as well. The staff of the hotel usually play against the visitor so I was by the pool and I heard they were playing football," he said.
