"He continues to make encouraging progress in his recovery. Over the weekend he has been able to sit out of bed for a short time, watch television and has begun to eat. However, he will need to continue to be closely monitored by the medical team for some time."
We're still a long way off from knowing whether or not Muamba is ever going to be able to play football at a high level ever again, but his health is seriously improving and it's great to know that he's almost certainly going to be able to go on to be an able-bodied person and live the way he did before his cardiac arrest, at least outside of football.
