Andy Murray recounts his thoughts when he saw Fabrice Muamba collapse on the pitch at White Hart Lane in March.

British tennis player Andy Murray met retired footballer Fabrice Muamba after qualifying for the semi-finals of the ATP World Tour Finals in London on Friday.

The midfielder suffered a heart attack while playing for Bolton Wanderers against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane in a FA Cup match in March, and subsequently retired from the game.

"I remember exactly where I was when it happened," said Murray. "I was watching the match on the TV in the States.

"Yeah, I sat in front of the TV. There was nothing on the TV. I just couldn't believe it happened.

"When you heard a few hours later that he was okay, it was quite incredible. Yeah, it was very cool to meet him. He's got a pretty incredible story to tell, so it was nice."

Muamba needed life-saving treatment after his heart stopped beating for 78 minutes.
