The Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba has walked for the first time since suffering a cardiac arrest as his condition continues to improve.

Muamba was technically dead for 78 minutes after collapsing in Wanderers' English FA Cup football tie with Tottenham last month.

Bolton manager Owen Coyle says the player is taking steps, talking and is progressing the right way.

Muamba remains in intensive care at a London hospital.
