The family of Fabrice Muamba have taken the time to 'thank God' and football supporters from around the world.

Muamba remains in intensive care at the London Chest Hospital after collapsing as a result of a cardiac arrest during last weekend's FA Cup sixth round tie at Tottenham Hotspur.

The 23-year-old remains in intensive care, but appears to be making steady progress in his miraculous recovery.

In a statement from Muamba's fiancee, Shauna Magunda, and his father, Marcel, they have thanked everybody for the messages of support they have received over the past seven days.

A statement read: "We would like to firstly thank God for answering our prayers.
Thank-you to everyone for the love, prayers and support over the past few days. In particular we owe an enormous gratitude to the Bolton Wanderers and Spurs medical teams for their quick reaction on Saturday, and the fantastic medical team here at The London Chest Hospital.

"We have been overwhelmed by all the kind messages we have received. The support we have had from the fans, not just from Bolton but football supporters around the world, has given us so much strength. We have been particularly touched by the support from the football community globally.

"Thanks also to our family and close friends and thank-you to the media for respecting our privacy during this very difficult time.

"Even though Fabrice has made great progress over the last couple of days, he is still in intensive care and still has a long period of recovery ahead. He has asked that you please keep him in your prayers."
