Bolton Wanderers footballer Fabrice Muamba was today discharged from hospital, almost a month to the day after he suffered a cardiac arrest during a game.

Midfielder Muamba 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.

He was discharged from hospital today and paid tribute to staff who cared for him.
