Muamba collapsed unopposed during Bolton’s FA Cup quarter-final clash with Tottenham having suffered a cardiac arrest.
After laying stricken in hospital whilst anguished fans and fellow professionals sweated on whether or not the Congolese-born star was going to survive or not, twitter fiend Liam Stacey – whose twitter name is LiamStacey9 – posted a series of horribly racists tweets mocking Muamba.
The tweets were then sent to the police before being deleted. Stacey, from South Wales, was swiftly arrested before admitting to inciting racial hatred when he appeared at Swansea Magistrates’ Court.
The Swansea University biology student has now been sentenced for 56 days in prison as Muamba continues to make a slow but steady recovery.
