From Bolton Wanderers official Twitter feed today when Fabrice Muamba, who suffered a heart attack on the pitch in Bolton’s FA Cup game with Tottenham less than a month ago, was discharged from Barts Health NHS Trust, which released this joint statement with the following quote from Muamba:
“I am naturally very pleased to be discharged from hospital and would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to every single member of staff at The London Chest Hospital who have played a part in my care.
“Their dedication, professionalism and expertise is simply amazing and I will forever be in their debt. I also wish to say thank you to all the many well-wishers who have sent thousands of messages of support.
“Now I am out of hospital, I am looking forward to continuing my recovery and spending precious time with my family.”
A piece of good news on a weekend when another life was cut short following 25 year-old Piermario Morosini’s on-field heart attack.
