Arsenal legend Thierry Henry visited Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba yesterday.

The Daily Mail says the Frenchman used a back entrance at the London Chest Hospital to see his close friend and former club-mate at Arsenal, who is recovering from the cardiac arrest he suffered on Saturday.

New York Red Bulls striker Henry, 34, is believed to have spoken to the 23-year-old just a week before he suffered a cardiac arrest.

Muamba has continued to show signs of improvement, chatting with friends and family throughout the day.
