She told BBC Radio 4’s Today show in April how she went to hospital with her children Hana, 16, and William, 13, to say their final goodbyes.

Sue explained: “Covered from head to toe in PPE we said our goodbyes to him.

“We’d been told he would likely die the following day.

“When the dreaded call from the consultant came the next day, he told us there had been a tiny improvement which meant a drug supporting Mal’s blood pressure could be reduced; not enough to raise too much hope but a glimmer nonetheless.

“For the next few weeks it was touch and go.

Medics worked at simply keeping Mal alive, giving his body a chance of fighting the virus.”

After spending 61 days on a ventilator, Mal has now recovered
