Fabrice Muamba will be the guest of honour at Bolton's Premier League game tonight with Tottenham.

It will be the first time the midfielder will attend a game since suffering a cardiac arrest during the FA Cup tie between the two side's in March.

The speed of Muamba's recovery has amazed doctors.

The 24-year-old, whose heart stopped beating for 78 minutes following his collapse, spent a month at the London Chest Hospital before being discharged on April 16th.

Bolton's manager Owen Coyle said, "We are absolutely delighted that we will be able to welcome Fabrice and his family back to the Reebok, and we are all looking forward to seeing him. It's fitting that the match is between these two clubs and that Fabrice is able to come along. I know Fabrice is very keen to show his appreciation to both sets of fans for their support."

Since his discharge the midfielder has continued his rehabilitation at home and on Saturday the former England Under-21 midfielder thanked people on Twitter for their "prayers, love and support".
