ADMIRATION: Well-wishing mementoes are left outside The Reebok Stadium in support of Muamba

BOLTON WANDERERS manager Owen Coyle gave an update today (March 26) on the wellbeing of Fabrice Muamba, who had a cardiac arrest at White Hart Lane on March 17.

Coyle revealed that the 23-year-old midfielder was able to watch highlights of their 2-1 over Blackburn Rovers on March 24.

"Fabrice is able to recognise people and answer questions," said Coyle.

"He also watched Match of the Day on Sunday morning, which shows he is making progress, although he did fall asleep with the score at 2-0."

Muamba was not breathing for 78 minutes following his collapse against Tottenham Hotspur on March 17.

However, the former England Under-21 international has showed significant signs of recovery but is still in a serious but stable condition at the London Chest Hospital in Bethnal Green, east London.

Coyle added: "Fabrice's father, Marcel, and fiancee, Shauna, wanted to express their thanks to everyone.

"Football is a passionate game but nothing is more important than Fabrice's recovery."
