Fabrice Muamba has been presented with an honorary doctorate at The University of Bolton's annual degree ceremony.

Muamba collapsed as a result of a cardiac arrest during an FA Cup tie at Tottenham Hotspur in March and accepted the award in recognition of those who helped to save his life.

Speaking after receiving the honour, Muamba admitted he still hopes to return to football one day, but refuses to set a date for that occasion.

"I'm getting stronger every day, Muamba said. "However, I'm far away from being back on the football pitch.

"I really, really hope, by the grace of God, that I'll be back on the pitch but I'm just grateful to the University for this doctorate and I receive it on behalf of everybody who helped me to survive the cardiac arrest."
