Georgia head coach Levan Maisashvili is back in his home country after a two-month battle against Covid-19 in a Johannesburg hospital.
Maisashvili was in a critical condition after contracting coronavirus following the Test between the Springboks and Georgia in Pretoria on 2 July.
A Covid-19 outbreak in both camps led to the cancellation of the second Test between the teams, scheduled to take place at Ellis Park on 9 July.
Maisashvili was among those affected and was placed on a ventilator in a hospital in Johannesburg. Despite suffering damage to his lungs, he has recovered from the virus.
