A hard-hitting TV advert will be shown to raise awareness of heart health, as new figures reveal coronary disease claims 5,000 Welsh lives every year.

The advert - part of British Heart Foundation's new campaign 'Fight For Every Heartbeat' - includes the moment footballer Fabrice Muamba went into cardiac arrest during an FA cup match last year.

Heart disease remains the UK's single biggest killer, with one in six men and one in nine women in Wales dying as a result of it.

A Twitter 'troll' has appeared in court in Swansea to admit writing racist and offensive tweets about soccer star Fabrice Muamba.

Swansea University student Liam Stacey, 21, appeared in Swansea Magistrates' Court after his comments about the Bolton Wanderers player.

Magistrates heard Stacey tried to "distance himself" from the comments by saying his account had been hacked.

He later tried to delete his page, but police arrested him on Sunday morning at his student home in Swansea.

This morning, he pleaded guilty to a racially-aggravated public order offence to incite violence.

Stacey was freed on bail on condition he stays off Twitter and other social networking sites. He will be sentenced next week - but was warned he could face jail.
