I'm fine, Muamba tells team doctor
The early signs of Fabrice Muamba's recovery have continued and the footballer said that he was "fine", Bolton Wanderers' team doctor has said.
The 23-year-old remains in intensive care at the London Chest Hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest during an FA Cup match on Saturday.
Dr Jonathan Tobin, who visited Muamba on Tuesday evening, said: "I'm glad to say that the early signs of recovery have continued. I went in and he said 'Hi, doc.' I asked him how he was and he said 'Fine'."
Dr Tobin said the player had asked him what had happened. "I explained to him what had happened," he said. "That's the sort of level of communication I have had with Fabrice."
It took 15 shocks to get the player's heart started after he collapsed, he said.
Speaking at the hospital in Bethnal Green, east London, he told of his reaction when he first realised the player was in trouble.
Going through his head was the thought "Oh my God, it's Fabrice", he said.
Medics worked on Muamba for 48 minutes between his collapse and arrival at the hospital, Dr Tobin said.
He admitted he broke down in tears in the hospital corridor when the seriousness of what had happened to the player hit home - and added that he had feared the worst.
Dr Andrew Deaner, the cardiologist and Tottenham fan who leapt from his seat in the crowd and rushed on to the pitch to help the player, said his recovery could be described as "miraculous".
