London. Mar 27(ANI): Bolton Wanderer's midfielder Fabrice Muamba's condition is steadily improving as he ate food for the first time since suffering a cardiac arrest during his team's FA Cup quarterfinal clash against Tottenham Hotspurs at White Hart Lane.

"Over the weekend, he has been able to sit out of bed for a short time, watch television and has begun to eat," the Sky News quoted Coyle, as saying.
