Scottish Rugby Union president Dee Bradbury has left hospital and is isolating at home as she recovers a cardiac arrest.

Bradbury, who is the mother of Edinburgh and Scotland forward Magnus, became the first female president of a top-tier rugby nation when she took on the post in August 2018. Her term finishes this summer.
