Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba is in a critical but stable condition after collapsing on the pitch, according to statements released by his club and the hospital where he is being treated.
Muamba slumped to the turf in an FA Cup tie against Tottenham at White Hart Lane, and underwent several minutes of CPR and defibrillation before being taken to the London Chest Hospital.
The incident took place with nobody around him in the 42nd minute of the match, which was later abandoned by referee Howard Webb.
Medical staff spent several minutes attempting to resuscitate him using CPR and a defibrillator. Muamba was eventually carried from the pitch on a stretcher as doctors continued to attend to him.
Muamba was born in the Congolese capital of Kinshasa, but came to Britain at an early age with his family. He graduated through the youth ranks at Arsenal, and was a regular for England at Under-21 level.
Since joining Bolton from Birmingham City in 2008, Muamba has made 148 appearances for the Trotters.
