It's an absolutely stunning turn of events following what was an incredibly scary situation on the pitch. Muamba collapsed with nobody around him and medics were seen immediately rushing to his aid. Reports indicated the medical crews on-site were working to resuscitate him with a defibrillator both on the pitch and on the way to the hospital, and it appears the efforts worked.
