BACK FROM THE DEAD: Fabrice Muamba Sits Up Smiling In Hospital Bed Fortnight After His Heart Stopped For 78 MINUTES During Game
BOLTON WANDERERS midfielder Fabrice Muamba had a photo of himself, showing him in high spirits, posted on Twitter yesterday [Mar. 30] by his partner Shauna.
The 23-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest on March 17 in an FA Cup tie against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane which caused him to collapse.
The England Under-21 international’s heart was not beating for 78 minutes.
However, Muamba has made a miraculous recovery at the London Chest Hospital in Bethnal Green, east London.
Shauna tweeted, "Fab wanted me to post this pic for you all and to also say thank you for such overwhelming support".
There has been much discussion/speculation on social media about who is behind the Gidi Traffic Twitter account, is it male or female and that a whole team is behind the feed.
Well, the curiosity can now be laid to rest…Gidi Traffic has revealed its identity to BBC shortly after the Shorty Awards which held in New York City earlier this week where Gidi Traffic was nominated for Life Saving Hero Award…
|Alicia Keys looks like a Goddess at Chanel's Paris Fashion Week show|
It's been revealed Alicia Keys turned down the chance to trace her family's historical roots after her grandmother warned the star not to go through with it.
Alicia was invited to take part in the PBS series Finding Your Roots, in which African-American historian Dr. Henry Louis Gates traces celebrities' family backgrounds. Chris Rock, Samuel L. Jackson and Condoleezza Rice have all appeared on the show.
However, Dr. Gates recently explained Alicia backed out of process when her grandmother warned the singer not to do it.
Dr. Gates explained: "Alicia Keys, who I love as a friend of mine, agreed to be in the first series, and as you know, she’s mixed".
"Her African-American grandmother said ‘Baby…’, we send people a form, we need as much information as you can give us. Like the names of your parents, where they were born, grandparents etc., whatever you can give us. It makes our job a lot simpler right?"
"Her grandmother said ‘Baby, you can’t be in the series. I can’t tell you why, but you can’t be in the series.’"
Strange... what could be in Alicia's past her grandmother doesn't want her to know?
