Fabrice Muamba faces a crucial 24 hours with the Bolton midfielder said to be critically ill in intensive care at the heart attack centre of the London Chest Hospital.

Tottenham’s FA Cup tie against Bolton was dramatically called off when Trotters midfielder Muamba collapsed in the centre of the White Hart Lane pitch after suffering a suspected heart attack in front of 36,000 fans and a television audience of a million.

The 23-year-old, who was reported to have stopped breathing, received cardio-resuscitation treatment from doctors and paramedics as shocked and distressed players from both sides looked on.

Bolton boss Owen Coyle accompanied Muamba to the hospital and later emerged to give an update on the player's progress.
He told Sky News: 'Fabrice is critically ill. The next 24 hours are going to be absolutely crucial.'

He continued: 'We've obviously been inundated with people wishing him well and we hope that if everybody can pray strongly tonight that Fabrice is able to recover.
'It's very serious. There's not getting away from that. He's critically ill and God willing he makes it through.'


The club released a statement which read: 'Bolton Wanderers can confirm that Fabrice Muamba has been admitted to the heart attack centre at London Chest hospital where he is currently in a critically ill condition in intensive care.

'No further information will be issued at this stage. The club has requested the media to respect his family's privacy at this time.'
Some of them were in tears, others openly prayed while Muamba, an England Under 21 player who had arrived in  Britain as an 11-year-old when his father was granted asylum after earlier fleeing as a political refugee from their native Democratic Republic of Congo, fought for his life.
