«As it stands, it’s good news. He’s conscious, he’s talking. I think he’s a little embarrassed about it all. He apologized profusely. He’s not a man who likes people to make fun of him,» Thomas said. «Obviously, he’s too early to make any kind of diagnosis.
«But the important thing is that Shaka is conscious and we also talked to his family because you can imagine seeing that live, there can’t be much more scary stuff in the family. But luckily we talked to his wife and things are looking good.»
