Fabrice Muamba collapsed during a football match on March 17th; his heart for 78 minutes as paramedics – including a cardiologist who leapt onto the pitch from the stands – battled to keep the player alive. He was rushed to the London Chest Hospital, where he was visited by his Bolton team-mates and a string of football friends.
