TV presenter Charlie Webster shared the first photo of her in a coma with life support, two years after she almost died of malaria.
Ms. Webster, 35, also revealed her mental health battles for the first time during her recovery.
She tweeted: "I was less than 24 hours old, I was unlikely to survive the night, they told my mother that she probably had brain damage.
"This time last year I was still struggling with my physical health and to a large extent my mental health."
Former presenter of Sky Sports Ms Webster contracted the disease during a 3,000-mile bike ride from London to Rio during the 2016 Olympic Games.
A few days after arriving in the Brazilian city, she fell ill and entered the hospital on suspicion of dehydration. But in reality he had contracted a rare form of malaria.
Two years later, he said on Friday: "Today I feel strange, difficult to describe, I am filled with memories of pain and also the lack of love of my mother and my brothers, but I have a big smile on my face that I survived and I & # 39; I'm still surviving.
"We've been through shit like we've all done, we can sit here and say," I survived. "
"I made the decision to make sure I learned from everything that happened to me and to be a better person for it."
She continued: "It may not seem like that at the moment, but we are incredibly resilient and blessed with a surprising spirit of struggle and survival.
"All this crap that happens to us simply strengthens us, gives us a deeper understanding and empathy and more capable of helping others overcome bad times.
"Basically keep going! You can do it! I know it's easy to say, but through deep pain, honestly, we learn a lot about ourselves and how extraordinary humans are."
