Fabrice Muamba reveals agony of enduring second 'heart-attack' during summer
Former Bolton Wanderers striker Fabrice Muamba has revealed that he endured the agony of a second heart-attack threat during the summer.
The Bolton midfielder was enjoying a holiday with his family when he felt the defibrillator which the doctors had fitted in his chest to restart his heart, stop beating again.
"It's like an electric shock and everything stops for a second. You've got to get yourself together. It kicked in. That confirms it is working well, which is safe," The Sun quoted Muamba, as saying, who was subsequently forced to retire from football.
Muamba, 24, made a miracle recovery after his heart had stopped beating for 78 minutes due to a cardiac arrest, as millions of TV viewers saw him collapse on the pitch during an FA Cup tie at Tottenham last season.
He is now associated with promoting Hearts and Goals, a campaign aiming to reduce cardiac arrest deaths.
