Roberts meets Muamba

6 November 2012

Royals striker speaks to Fabrice Muamba on BBC 5 Live

On the evening 17th of March 2012, the Royals travelled back from Barnsley in high spirits after picking up another important three points on the road. But we, and the entire football family, were brought back down to life after hearing the news of Fabrice Muamba's cardiac arrest during Bolton's FA Cup tie at White Hart Lane.

Muamba made a miraculous recovery and eventually announced his retirement from football. Reading striker and 606 presented Jason Roberts recently spoke to Fabrice on BBC 5 Live in a heartwarming interview.

The former Bolton midfielder spoke to Roberts about his collapse, waking up from his coma and his career in the game. It's well worth a listen - click here and play from around 07.40 minutes.

The pair recently visited a football club in Kent for children who are physically disabled or have learning difficulties - and the action was filmed for BBC Children in Need.
