Fabrice Muamba brought Britain to its knees when he collapsed on the pitch. Matthew Murray met the man who put prayer on the front pages of the tabloids.


Football fans across the globe looked on in shock as Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba collapsed on the pitch as his team took on Tottenham Hotspur in a televised FA Cup quarter-final.

It soon transpired he had suffered a cardiac arrest and was dead for 78 minutes. Paramedics rushed to the scene and the game was abandoned.

Everyone feared the worst. Muamba wasn’t responding and was rushed to hospital, his family being told to prepare a funeral for the 24-year-old.

But what happened next shocked the world – Britain turned to prayer. Backed by the Sun Newspaper – whose front page headline ‘Pray for Muamba’ was a historic moment for Christianity in the UK – everyone began to pray for Fabrice’s recovery.

Footballers wore ‘Pray For Muamba’ t-shirts underneath their kits and churches up and down the country held prayer meetings for the former Arsenal youngster.
