As the Olympic torch continues to make its way to London for the 2012 games, a myriad of famous people have had the privilege to carry it as it gets closer to lighting the fire and starting the games. Fabrice Muamba will join those ranks as he carries the Olympic torch tomorrow through the London borough of Waltham Forest, according to Reuters.

"As an ex-Waltham Forest schoolboy Fabrice Muamba has strong ties with the borough and has seen the area transform in the run up to the Olympic Games,"

Chris Robbins, the leader of Waltham Forest council, said in a statement.

"His drive, courage and determination to return to top-flight football have been remarkable and he has proved to be a great role model to Waltham Forest's young people."
