Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba remains in critical condition at the Heart Attack Centre at The London Chest Hospital.

A new statement, jointly released by Bolton and Barts and The London NHS Trust, on Sunday evening confirmed there had been no change in Muamba's condition after it was earlier revealed medical staff had taken two hours to get the 23-year-old's heart working again.

"Fabrice Muamba remains in a critical condition in intensive care in the Heart Attack Centre at the London Chest Hospital," said the fresh statement.

"There will be no further update tonight."

The first official statement of the day, a detailed explanation of what had happened to Muamba at White Hart Lane, brought good news in the sense that Muamba's heart was working again.

"Fabrice Muamba remains in a critical condition in intensive care in the Heart Attack Centre at The London Chest Hospital," read the statement.

"He was admitted to the hospital yesterday evening after collapsing at White Hart Lane, where he sustained a cardiac arrest during the FA Cup quarter-final against Tottenham Hotspur.

"Fabrice received prolonged resuscitation at the ground and on route to The London Chest Hospital, where his heart eventually started working.

"As is normal medical practice, Fabrice remains anaesthetised in intensive care and will be for at least 24 hours.

"His condition continues to be closely monitored by the cardiac specialists at the hospital."
