While he's not out of the woods yet, soccer star Fabrice Muamba — who suffered a heart attack in the middle of a game on Saturday — is showing signs of improvement!
A joint statement from the hospital treating the 23-year-old and his team read:
"Fabrice Muamba remains in intensive care at The London Chest Hospital, where today he is showing small signs of improvement. His heart is now beating without the help of medication and he is also moving his arms and his legs. However, his long-term prognosis will remain unclear for some time. He is still critically ill and will continue to be closely monitored and treated by staff in The London Chest Hospital's intensive care unit."
It's more important than ever for all of the Fabrice Muamba fans to be rooting for him and we hope to hear about more "signs of improvement" soon!
