Fabrice Muamba was a guest at Sunday night's charity Corazon Classic Match between Real Madrid and Manchester United veterans teams at the Bernabeu.
The Bolton midfielder, who suffered a cardiac arrest in an FA Cup tie at Tottenham in March, was given an ovation by both star-studded sides and spectators as he carried the match ball out for the kick-off.
