As Muamba spoke for the first time since he collapsed after a cardiac arrest on Saturday, his delighted fiancée Shauna Magunda announced to worried fans their prayers had been answered.
The 27-year-old, mother of his three-year-old son Joshua, tweeted: “All your prayers are working people thank u so so much. Every prayer makes him stronger. To God be the glory.”
The Mirror says Shauna spoke after Bolton favourite Muamba, 23, woke up at 2pm in intensive care, recognised the woman he proposed to on Valentine’s Day and, according to a friend, asked: “Where’s Josh?”
He stunned doctors and his family by coming round 44 hours after his heart stopped during Bolton’s FA Cup tie with Tottenham at White Hart Lane. Muamba also started moving his legs and arms.
