"Miracle man" talks about coma recovery

Former Oxford United footballer, Robbie Hughes, and his mother talk to about life after he was attacked five years ago while on holiday in Crete. Doctors said Mr Hughes, who was 27 at the time, was 48 hours away from death and warned he could be paralysed for life.

He defied their expectations by emerging from a coma after a fortnight and gradually learning to walk again. Five years on Mr Hughes still has no memory of his mum, his seven brothers and sisters or his friends.
