Fabrice Muamba has revealed he has played football for the first time since his heart attack last season.

He told CNN World Sport: "I was on holiday and I was staying in a hotel and there were quite a few footballers in the hotel as well.

"The staff of the hotel usually play against the visitors so I was by the pool and I heard they were playing football. I was like 'ah really?' and I was like 'yeah' and there's me thinking maybe I should try.

"Then I went across and saw other footballers playing and I told my friends and (fiance) Shona. I told her 'I am sorry but I am going to play football'. She goes 'are you sure?' and I say 'yes' and I just went in there."

The 24-year-old admitted his fiance was "scared" as he played for around 25 minutes. However, he had no problems and was just glad to be back in action.

Muamba added: "It was just to get back into the groove and to get back into momentum.

"It was just playing like I was training. It was great, I enjoyed it.

"I just hope to God that I can get in there myself, with the 11 players on the pitch and to play would be fantastic."
