The Emotional Moment When Fabrice Muamba Returned To White Hart Lane Where He Collapsed

Fabrice Muamba broke down in tears as he revisited the spot where he suffered a cardiac arrest back in 2012.

The ex-Bolton midfielder collapsed during a televised FA Cup clash against Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

His heart stopped for 78 minutes before being restarted when he was rushed to hospital.

Eight months after the scare, Muamba returned to the pitch where he fell and pointed to it in incredibly emotional scenes.
