London:

Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba has started to eat again and has been able to leave his bed as he maintains "encouraging progress" in his remarkable recovery from a mid-game cardiac arrest.

A joint statement from Bolton and the London Chest Hospital on Monday says Muamba remains in intensive care "where his condition is serious but stable."

The statement says the 23-year-old Muamba still needs to be closely monitored by doctors but "was able to sit out of bed for a short time, watch television and has begun to eat" over the weekend.

Muamba's heart stopped beating on its own for 78 minutes after he collapsed during an FA Cup quarterfinal match against Tottenham on March 17.
