Bolton Wanders' Fabrice Muamba is still reported to be in critical condition, after the player suffered a cardiac arrest during a game on Saturday

Fabrice Muamba, a player from the Bolton Wanders' team is still reported to be in a critical condition, after he suffered a cardiac arrest on Saturday. Muamba will remain anaesthetised in intensive care unit for at least the next 24 hours, so that his heart can become strong again. Fabrice Muamba underwent a cardiac arrest during the first half of the match between Bolton Wanders, and Tottenham on Saturday. He just collapsed on the field and the match was immediately halted and paramedics rushed to the field.

A joint statement was released on Sunday morning by the London Chest Hospital and the club, in which it was mentioned that Fabrice Muamba's heart did stop working but it started working again after he was carried from the pitch on a stretcher. The work of the paramedics who were present on the field at that time, is being applauded since they tried their best to resuscitate the player and in the end, succeeded. The statement said: "Fabrice was admitted to the hospital yesterday evening after collapsing at White Hart Lane, where he sustained a cardiac arrest during the FA Cup quarter-final against Tottenham Hotspur. Fabrice received prolonged resuscitation at the ground and on route to The London Chest Hospital, where his heart eventually started working. As is normal medical practice, Fabrice remains anaesthetised in intensive care and will be for at least 24 hours. His condition continues to be closely monitored by the cardiac specialists at the hospital."

The situation at the game on Saturday, turned from joyful to sad and tragic in an instant, as soon as Fabrice Muamba fell to the ground. All the spectators were shocked to see him fall and not get up again. Even his teammates were shocked to see the situation and most of them were seen praying and crying for Muamba. The referee of the game, Howard Webb was also applauded for his composure and tactful handling of the situation. Webb abandoned the FA cup game and went with Muamba to the hospital. Other people who went with Muamba to the hospital included Bolton manager Owen Coyle and captain Kevin Davies. Muamba's family visited the England Under-21 international on Sunday.

Owan Coyle said: "Fabrice's family have asked me to pass on their thanks for the many, many kind messages of support from not only Bolton fans but also fans from clubs across the country and abroad. All our thoughts and prayers are for Fabrice and his family. The family would also like to thank the media for respecting their privacy at this time."
