Friday March 30, 2012

Smiling widely, and sitting up in his hospital bed, Fabrice Muamba looks well and happy.

The heart-warming photo of the Bolton FC star was tweeted by his fiancée Shauna Magunda.

The footballer wanted to say thank you to the millions of fans who sent messages of support after he suffered a near-fatal heart attack two weeks ago.

Shauna wrote in the caption accompanying the snap: "Fab wanted me to post this pic for you all and to also say thank you for such overwhelming support."

Fabrice is well on the road to recovery after he was suddenly taken ill during a match on March 17.

His heart stopped for 78 minutes and he was rushed to the London Chest Hospital as paramedics battled to keep him alive.
