Fabrice Muamba jokes about charging heart monitor before England-Italy shootout

Fabrice Muamba has to have one of the greatest senses of humor we have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. After suffering cardiac arrest in the middle of a soccer match and nearly losing his life a few months ago, nobody would blame Muamba for feeling sorry for himself. He faces a long road to recovery and doctors are unsure if he will ever be able to play soccer again. Yet somehow Muamba manages to make light of his situation. On Sunday, he made a joke about his heart monitor before the start of a shootout between England and Italy.

“Time to charge this bad boy before I watch the penalty (shootout),” Muamba tweeted alongside the photo you see above on the right. “(Come on) England.”

Italy came from behind to win the shootout 4-2. Back in March, Muamba also made a joke when he came out of his coma in the hospital. His outlook on life should be an inspiration to all of us who complain about things that are far easier to deal with than a serious heart condition that prevents you from doing what you love.
