Muamba showing "slight improvement," still in intensive care

Two days after nearly dying of a massive heart attack, Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba is showing signs of improvement, according to a statement released from Barts Hospital and Bolton Wanderers.

Muamba will remain anaesthetised for the next 24 hours but doctors have said the 23-year-old's heart is "beating without aid of medication and he is also moving his arms and legs." Muamba's heart did not beat on its own for nearly two hours after he collapsed during Saturday's game with Tottenham Hotspur. He remains in intensive care in critical yet stable condition.

"His long-term prognosis will remain unclear for some time," the statement continued. "He is still critically ill and will continue to be closely monitored and treated by staff in the London chest hospital's intensive care unit."

Bolton has already postponed their midweek game with Aston Villa and may postpone Saturday's game with Blackburn Rovers.
