Read this on the Beeb today - some good news amongst all the bad
Being a Spinal Injury myself (1984) this rarely happens, I am so happy for the guy - long way to go yet I would imagine

"Worcester lock Michael Fatialofa has walked unaided less than 11 weeks after a serious neck injury left him in intensive care.

The 27-year-old has been in hospital since suffering the injury in a game against Saracens on 4 January.

"You're witnessing a miracle that even medical professionals can't explain," wrote Fatialofa's wife Tatiana with a video of him walking on Instagram.

"They are so shook by his progress given his critical level of injury."

She added: "He was literally paralysed from the neck down just 10 weeks ago and currently spinal cord injuries do not have a clinical cure, but my amazing husband is proof that god is never limited to human wisdom. So so so thankful."

Incredible stuff, well done Michael and the medical staff.

Absolutely brilliant news, especially for his family, in amongst all the devastation in the rest of the world. Certainly makes one think about how fragile life is and how we take things for granted. And very well done to everyone in the NHS who contributed to this result.

Sincerely hope Michael continues to recover and returns to full health.

Amazing news, so pleased for him and his family, but as you say AAA it is probably a very long way back and this is only the start
