Reebok Stadium star has spent almost a month at the London hospital.
Bolton Wanderers footballer Fabrice Muamba was today discharged from hospital, almost a month to the day after he suffered a cardiac arrest during a game.
Midfielder Muamba collapsed on the pitch in the first half of Bolton’s FA Cup quarter-final at Tottenham Hotspur on March 17, with the game subsequently being abandoned.
He was discharged from hospital today and paid tribute to staff who cared for him.
In a joint statement, Barts Health NHS Trust and Bolton Wanderers confirmed Muamba, who turned 24 earlier this month, was discharged from hospital today.
The 23-year-old shook hands with Dr Andrew Deaner, the cardiologist and Tottenham fan who leapt from his seat in the crowd and rushed on to the pitch to help Muamba, as well as consultant cardiologist Dr Sam Mohiddin, both from Barts Health NHS Trust.

This is of course great news and comes just days after Italian midfielder Piermario Morosini passed away after having a cardiac arrest on the field of play during a Serie B match.
Fabrice Muamba was declared dead for 78 minutes so for the former Arsenal man to have survived at all is a miracle and the fact that the Bolton man has now been discharged to continue his recovery is fairly astonishing.
We wish the 23 year old well in his continued recovery.
