Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba is showing signs of improvement after medical staff revealed he can move his arms and legs.
Muamba is still in intensive care after collapsing from a heart attack during the Tottenham game and although he still has someway to go before he is out of the woods, the latest statement is encouraging.
The statement on the club's website read: "Fabrice Muamba remains in intensive care at the The London Chest Hospital, where today he is showing small signs of improvement.
"His heart is now beating without the help of medication and he is also moving his arms and his 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."
