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."
Bolton boss Owen Coyle says it wouldn't surprise him to see the midfielder back on a football pitch reasonably soon.
Bolton Wanderers footballer Fabrice Muamba has been discharged from hospital, almost a month after suffering a cardiac arrest during a game.
Muamba continues to make "strong and steady improvements" in his recovery from a cardiac arrest as he celebrates his 24th birthday.
