Thierry Henry: Makes flying visit to London
Thierry Henry has revealed that Fabrice Muamba 'is getting a lot better' after making a flying visit to see the Bolton star at the London Chest Hospital.
The Frenchman, who played with the former England Under-21 captain during his Arsenal days, jetted in from the United States to visit the Bolton youngster.
The former Arsenal star, currently playing for New York Red Bulls, spent more than an hour with the midfielder, who collapsed during an FA Cup match against Tottenham on Saturday after suffering from cardiac arrest and his family.
Henry, 34, played for Red Bulls in their 2-0 home defeat against Real Salt Lake on Sunday night, before embarking on a series of flights totalling more than 5,000 miles.
And Henry stated on Twitter after his visit to London: "Leaving back to America - Fabrice is getting a lot better which is fantastic. I will let you know more when I'm back in the US."
Henry had spoken to the 23-year-old only a week before the Tottenham game, where he collapsed after going into sustained cardiac arrest.
Muamba has continued to show signs of improvement, chatting with friends and family throughout the day.
