London, April 6 (IANS) Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle confirmed that midfielder Fabrice Muamba was walking again and continues to recover after an on-field collapse last month.
The 23-year-old suffered cardiac arrest March 18 in the English FA Cup quarterfinal game against Tottenham and was rushed to a London Chest Hospital where he spent two days in medically-induced coma at the London Chest Hospital.
It took 78 minutes for his heart to start working on its own again, but Muamba has made incredible progress since then and last Friday a picture of him sitting up in his hospital bed and smiling was posted on Twitter.
"He has done some short periods of walking down the corridor he is in as part of the unit, staying in intensive care," Coyle was quoted as saying ESPN Soccernet.
"He is taking steps, talking and has that big smile which we love to see, so he is certainly progressing the right way."
He added: "My chairman Phil Gartside was there yesterday with our club doctor Jonathan Tobin, and our club chaplain Phil Mason will be there today to continue the support from the football club."
