Brooke set for hopspital discharge




Zinzan Brooke should be released from hospital next week, after recovering full from surgery on a head injury sustained in Elche, in Spain.

Brooke was injured falling out of a taxi on May 26, while coaching a Barbarians invitational tour of Tunisia and Spain.

The fall, and the impact of his head hitting the ground, left him with a blood clot that required surgery in order to alleviuate the pressure inside his skull.

Brooke’s wife Alison, who is pregnant with the couple’s fourth child, and his brothers Simon and Robin have joined him out in Spain.

“He is up and about, walking around and on a regular diet now,” Barbarians media officer Alan Evans told Reuters on Saturday.

“The doctors are very pleased with his progress and he will undergo a check-up scan with a view to allowing him to return home in the middle of next week. They have said there will be no permanent damage.”
