Muamba critically ill
Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba is "critically ill" in intensive care at the heart attack centre of the London Chest Hospital, the club have confirmed.
Muamba collapsed in the 41st minute of Bolton's FA Cup quarter-final against Tottenham, with the match abandoned after the player received treatment on the pitch from paramedics.
He was rushed to hospital and the club have now released a statement which reads: "Bolton Wanderers can confirm that Fabrice Muamba has been admitted to the heart attack centre at London Chest hospital where he is currently in a critically ill condition in intensive care."
It added: "No further information will be issued at this stage. The club has requested the media to respect his family's privacy at this time."
The England Under-21 star underwent six minutes of treatment amid worrying scenes at the north London ground.
He was wearing an oxygen mask and was then rushed to the London Chest Hospital in Bethnal Green in east London.
Within a second of seeing Muamba fall to the ground, Bolton manager Owen Coyle shouted "he's just collapsed" before running on to the pitch to be alongside his player amid a sombre atmosphere at Tottenham's ground.
Both sets of fans chanted the player's name as he was being treated and Tottenham forward Rafael van der Vaart and Muamba's team-mate Tuncay Sanli both prayed for the former Arsenal player on the pitch. Some fans cried at the sight of seeing a player out cold on the pitch.
Muamba was carried off on a stretcher and referee Howard Webb abandoned the match moments later.
It is understood Coyle and Bolton's veteran striker Kevin Davies accompanied Muamba to the hospital.
