Former footballer Fabrice Muamba, 24, has launched a campaign to raise awareness about sudden cardiac arrest, months after he was stuck down with the condition.

The former Bolton Wanderers midfielder collapsed on the pitch during an FA Cup tie against Tottenham in March. The match came to a standstill when he fell to the ground.

Muamba, who was forced to retire from playing football, has teamed up with his former club and the charity Arrhythmia Alliance to launch the Hearts And Goals campaign, aiming to give communities the life-saving equipment to treat people with the condition.
