The release from intensive care of a well-known solicitor who had been in critical condition with coronavirus has been hailed as inspirational.
Niall Murphy, 43, gave the thumbs-up in video footage of him being wheeled from ICU on Friday night.
The married father-of-three from Belfast is a partner in KRW Law in Belfast.
He has been involved in many high-profile criminal trials and civil court cases, often representing victims of the Troubles.
Mr Murphy’s release from ICU on Good Friday has been described as “life-affirming and poignant” by his friend and fellow partner at KRW Law Kevin Winters.
Mr Winters told the PA news agency: “Hearing news of his transfer out of ICU has been seismic for Niall’s family.
“Watching the video of Niall being clapped and cheered by all the medical staff as he leaves ICU is truly inspirational and a defiantly iconic moment during this hellish crisis.”
Mr Murphy is also a keen gaelic games enthusiast.
