Sean Cox has regained consciousness after three months in a coma
Great news for the Liverpool fan from Meath.
Liverpool fan Sean Cox has regained consciousness in Beaumont Hospital, Dublin.
Mr Cox works for Precision Cables and the statement reads: "Séan has regained consciousness and is undergoing dedicated rehabilitation. Recovery is progressing positively but very slowly. His colleagues in Precision Cables are overwhelmed by the support and good wishes for Séan and his family that they receive on a daily basis. They would like once again to ask that you keep him in your prayers and that he will continue on his road to recovery."
As you may know, the 53-year-old father-of-three was left in a critical condition after an incident before Liverpool's Champions League semi-final against AS Roma on April 24.
Following the attack, Mr Cox was airlifted from Liverpool's Walton Centre to Beaumont Hospital.
The Irishman was brutally attacked by Daniele Sciusco, 29 and Filippo Lombardi, 20, before Liverpool's first-leg semi-final at Anfield against Roma.
The Italian nationals were both charged with violent disorder.
We wish Sean the very best with his recovery.
