Pictured: Bolton's Fabrice Muamba in hospital posted on Twitter

Fabrice Muamba has thanked fans for their support as the first picture of the Bolton midfielder since his on-field collapse against Tottenham appeared on Twitter.

In a message posted by his girlfriend Shauna, the Bolton Wanderers midfielder is shown sitting up in his hospital bed and smiling.

Muamba, 23, wearing a T-shirt and hooded top, is surrounded by medical equipment in the photograph but shows no outward signs of his ordeal.

The picture is accompanied by the words: "Fab wanted me to post this pic for you all and to also say thank you for such overwhelming support."

He is being treated at the London Chest Hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest during the first half of an FA Cup quarter-final at Tottenham Hotspurs' home ground.

The last message Muamba wrote on Twitter himself was on March 17, the day of his collapse, when he said: "Just reach White Hart Lane".
