Not sure if you watched this live yesterday, but during the FA Cup quarter-final match between Bolton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur, mid-fielder Fabrice Muamba collapsed on the field and had to be revived twice using a defibrillator.
I wasn’t gonna post the footage, but i just watched part of it again and the raw emotion captured on video of players and fans from both teams is incredible. After he was taken off the field on a stretcher, referree Howard Webb abandoned the match.
Here’s the highly emotional footage.
Muamba remains in critical condition.
“Bolton’s Fabrice Muamba is critically ill and will remain in intensive care until at least Monday morning.
The midfielder, 23, is at the London Chest Hospital’s heart attack centre after suffering a cardiac arrest during Saturday’s FA Cup tie at Tottenham.
At 2030 GMT on Sunday the hospital said Muamba remained in intensive care and is being kept sedated.
Bolton chairman Phil Gartside said: “I ask for everybody to keep Fabrice in their prayers and thoughts.” [BBC]
Hope he makes a full recovery.
Very sad that.
