Fabrice Muamba In Stable Condition, Hospital Spokesman Confirms

Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba is in stable condition after suffering an apparent heart attack on the pitch during Saturday's FA Cup match between the Wanderers and Tottenham, a hospital spokesman has confirmed. The FA Cup matchup was abandoned after the scary scene, with Muamba being rushed to the hospital as crews reportedly worked to resuscitate him following the apparent heart problem in the 42nd minute.

The news comes from Sky News' Mark White.

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.
