Fabrice Muamba has been released from hospital, barely a month after he collapsed on the pitch during Bolton’s FA Cup tie vs. Spurs. The midfielder was “technically dead” for 78 minutes after suffering a cardiac arrest and thanked medical staff for the prompt action that aided his recovery. “Their dedication, professionalism and expertise is simply amazing and I will forever be in their debt.” he said.

He also thanked the thousands of well wishers who had contacted him via Twitter.

If only all news could be this good, Kickettes!

    I was so happy for the news and he looks healthy and happy in the picture!
    I heard they are considering defibrillator implant for him so he could possibly play footies and be back on the pitch agin! Hope he continues to recover well!

      I think they already gave him the implant. Good old Fabrice. I saw him play for the Arsenal youth team against Southampton in 2005. He was immense, and I couldn't believe he was only 16. I hope he plays again, but his health is obviouly more important.
