Bolton's club doctor Jonathan Tobin has told how Fabrice Muamba informed him that he was feeling 'fine' on Tuesday evening.
Dr Tobin has been a regular visitor to the London Chest Hospital since Muamba was rushed to the specialist heart attack centre on Saturday evening.
After suffering a cardiac arrest during Bolton's FA Cup quarter-final clash with Tottenham, the 23-year-old has been tended to by medics in the capital.
His condition has improved steadily over recent days, with responses now offered to those who continue to pay him visits.
Dr Tobin is among those to have communicated with Muamba and he has revealed that the midfielder's recovery is going well.
"I'm glad to say that the early signs of recovery have continued," he said.
"I went to see Fabrice last night. I went in and he said 'Hi, doc.'
"I asked him how he was and he said 'Fine'."
Dr Tobin said Muamba had also asked him what had happened.
"I explained to him what had happened," he said.
"That's the sort of level of communication I have had with Fabrice."
Dr Tobin also spoke of his shock at seeing Muamba collapse at White Hart Lane and revealed that it had taken 15 shocks to get the player's heart started again.
