Tottenham’s FA Cup game against Bolton Wanderers has been abandoned after Trotters midfielder Fabrice Muamba collapsed and stopped breathing.
Medics spent 10 minutes trying to resuscitate the player on the field before the players were called off by referee Howard Webb.
BBC Radio 5 live senior football reporter Ian Dennis says the midfielder is fighting for his life.
The score was 1-1 when Muamba, 23, collapsed on 41 minutes.
Medical staff gave Muamba mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and tried to revive him with a defibrillator.
He was taken on the pitch on a stretcher and ESPN reported that he was not breathing as he was taken down the tunnel.
The former Arsenal midfielder has been taken to hospital.
