Fabrice Muamba had a comfortable night in the intensive care unit at the London Chest Hospital.
The Bolton midfielder is continuing his recovery after suffering a cardiac arrest during his side's FA Cup clash with Tottenham on Saturday.
Muamba has been in intensive care at the hospital since Saturday with it revealed on Monday afternoon that he was showing small signs of improvement.
Messages of support have been flooding in for Muamba and the player's family have asked for visitors to stop heading to the hospital to allow the 23-year-old to concentrate on his recovery.
In the latest update on Muamba's condition a joint statement issued by Barts and The London NHS Trust and Bolton Wanderers FC on Tuesday read: "Fabrice Muamba has had a comfortable night in the intensive care unit at The London Chest Hospital, where the medical team is continuing to monitor his progress.
"Fabrice's family has asked us to thank everyone again for their thoughts and prayers and for the continued messages of support, from which they draw great strength.
"To ensure the smooth running of the hospital for all patients - as well as Fabrice's need to concentrate on his recovery - they would request that he receive no more visitors for the moment, outside of immediate family and members of Bolton Wanderers Football Club.
"They would also like to thank the media for continuing to respect their privacy."
