The 24 year old ex-Bolton Wanderers player, Fabrice Muamba, who was declared dead seven months ago, married his girlfriend Shauna Magunda, 27, last weekend.

The footballer was declared dead for 78 minutes after collapsing in front of millions on a football pitch.

The ceremony looked like it would never happen in March, when Muamba had a heart attack during an FA Cup match at Tottenham ground White Hart Lane.

Muamba had proposed to 27-year-old Miss Magunda just a month before his cardiac arrest, on Valentine’s Day.

The wedding was attended by Premier League star Robin Van Persie and his wife, who posed with the happy couple for the latest edition of Hello! magazine.

Muamba told the magazine: ‘This year has been a difficult one but, to me, marriage is the happy ending.’

Dr Sam Mohiddin, one of the medics who saved Muamba’s life at the London Chest Hospital, also attended.

Dr Mohiddin said: ‘Seven months ago this day was completely inconceivable.

‘I just feel elated for Fabrice and Shauna, and so honoured to be here to celebrate with them.

‘The cardiac arrest had a big impact on everyone in football, and we all lived the moment as Fab recovered in hospital.

‘Everyone is so relieved and happy for him and Shauna.’
