Fabrice Muamba was overcome by emotion as he returned to Bolton for the first time since his cardiac arrest.

The Bolton midfielder was given a huge ovation as he was introduced to the crowd prior to Wednesday night's Barclays Premier League game against Tottenham at the Reebok Stadium. Muamba cried as he acknowledged applause from all sides of the ground in a poignant tribute.

The 24-year-old told Sky Sports: "This is a special place, the support has been overwhelming and I am just grateful for that. I am okay, I am getting stronger every day. I am happy to be back. I am just happy to be able to speak to people again and walk freely. I am very happy and very excited for today's game and I am happy that I came today."
