World Cup referee Howard Webb abandoned Tottenham's FA Cup quarter-final against Bolton, saying the players 'could not go on' after Fabrice Muamba collapsed on the pitch with a suspected heart attack.

White Hart Lane was stunned into an eerie silence as players, club officials and fans feared for the midfielder's life. Muamba fell to the ground on his own near the centre circle when the game was 41 minutes old and players soon had tears in their eyes as the severity of the situation quickly became clear.

Several looked to the skies in prayer and were consoled by team-mates as medics attempted to resuscitate Muamba with electric shock treatment. The London Chest Hospital later said Muamba was in a 'critically ill condition in intensive care'.

Spurs player Rafael van der Vaart was one of those visibly upset when Muamba collapsed and later took to Twitter to express his feelings. 'Terrible what happened with Muamba during the game,' he said. 'We're all praying for him.'
