Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba is receiving all kinds of support from around the soccer community as he continues his recovery from a sudden cardiac arrest, including one touching gesture from an MLS star who happens to be one of his former teammates.

New York Red Bulls forward Thierry Henry flew to London Tuesday for a brief visit with the recovering Muamba, a teammate of his at Arsenal from 2002-2007. Sources confirmed to SBI that while Henry left for London, he is fully expected to return ahead of Thursday's training session.

Muamba, whose heart stopped beating for 78 minutes and required 15 shocks to be restarted after the cardiac episode according to statements made by Bolton's team doctor, remains in intensive care at the London Chest Hospital.
