Muamba's release "almost a miracle," says cardiologist

A leading cardiologist has described Fabrice Muamba's release from hospital as "almost a miracle".

Dr Iqbal Malik, cardiologist at Hammersmith Hospital, said:

It's almost a miracle that he's come through and it appears that he is unscathed by it all. The fact that he was smiling, walking out of hospital and seemed to be communicating perfectly normally is fantastic news and nearly miraculous."
