Rob Harris of the associated press has reported that he has personally spoken to a friend of Fabrice Muamba who has told him that the Bolton player has spoken for the first time since his collapse in White Hart Lane two days ago. Harris tweeted the following update.

“Friend of Bolton’s Fabrice Muamba tells me player has spoken “minimal words” in English and French 2 days after cardiac arrest.”

This plus the reports that have been emanating today paint a fairly positive picture of the situation. According to them Muamba has been showing signs of improvement, which although very minute, are extremely encouraging. But the fact remains that Muamba is still in critical condition and is being closely monitored. An update on the situation was given in a joint statement by Bolton and the hospital officials.

“He is showing signs of improvement. His heart is now beating without help of medication and he is also moving his arms and legs. However his long-term prognosis will remain unclear for some time. He is still critically ill and will continue to be closely monitored and treated by staff in the London Chest Hospital’s intensive care unit.”

Tributes on the other hand are flowing in for the Bolton player. It is wonderful to see that the prayers and support is extending beyond England into other parts of the World. Football after all does transcend boundaries and rivalries.
