Bolton Wanderers footballer Fabrice Muamba has been discharged from hospital almost a month to the day after he suffered a cardiac arrest during a game.
The midfielder collapsed on the pitch in the first half of Bolton's FA Cup quarter-final at Tottenham Hotspur on March 17, with the game subsequently being abandoned.
The former England Under-21 international received treatment on the field before being taken to the London Chest Hospital.
It later emerged that it took 78 minutes for his heart to start working unassisted.
A spokesman for Barts Health NHS Trust paid tribute to him following his release from hospital:
Dr Andrew Deaner, a consultant cardiologist at the London Chest hospital where Fabrice Muamba was being treated, leapt from the stands at White Hart Lane after he spotted medics performing CPR on the 23-year-old player.
The footballer paid his own tribute to the hospital, saying in a statement:
