A 65-year-old Dundee man has returned home to his family after fighting Covid-19 for 90 days.
Staff in Ninewells Hospital cheered as patient Bob Morning was wheeled out of Ninewells Hospital and discharged to his family.
He was first admitted to Ninewells Hospital with Covid-19 on April 4.
Five days later he was moved to the intensive care unit (ICU) where he stayed for 63 days fighting the killer disease.
Bob left ICU in May before moving to ward 3 in the hospital to continue his recovery.
Bob said: “I’ve had fantastic treatment, the staff have encouraged me every step of the way.
“Since I came to ward 3 the main focus has been on physiotherapy and I’m feeling much stronger now and ready to go home.
“I really couldn’t have done it without the staff, they have pushed me all the way. I still have a bit of a journey and I will keep working hard on my recovery at home.”
Sarah Matthews, physiotherapy team lead for respiratory and critical care, said: “Bob has been through so much but has faced his therapy with enthusiasm and a good sense of humour.
“He has done everything that has been asked of him and we are so proud and excited that he’s off on the next part of his journey.”
