Sport took a backseat at the FA Cup game between Tottenham and Bolton as Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba was rushed to hospital after he collapsed during the match.
The match was abandoned after Muamba fell face-down in the 41st minute near the halfway line with no one around him.
A hospital spokesperson said Muamba was in stable condition which is good news considering medics rushed to Muamba with a defibrillator and treated the 23-year-old, pumping his chest as he left the field on a stretcher.
"Terrible what happened with Muamba during the game," Tottenham starter Rafael van der Vaart said on Twitter. "We're all praying for him."
