Lynagh leaves hospital, in the clear after stroke

Lynagh leaves hospital, in the clear after stroke

Michael Lynagh stood with his customary poise, only the length of a few torpedo kicks away from the Ballymore rugby ground where he starred for Australia, explaining how he'd lost some vision but otherwise survived a potentially fatal stroke.
The 48-year-old Lynagh, a pivotal player in Australia's 1991 World Cup triumph, was released from the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital on Wednesday morning, a week after being moved out of intensive care and just over two weeks after arriving in an ambulance after complaining of serious headaches and blurred vision.
He told a roomful of media at the hospital that apart from losing almost half the vision on his left side, he is otherwise in good shape.
