LONDON (AP) - Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba has started to eat again and gotten out of bed, making “encouraging progress” in his recovery from cardiac arrest during a game.

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

The statement says the 23-year-old player 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 against Tottenham on March 17.
