Sheffield boxer Johnny Nelson packed a punch with staff when he unveiled a £1.2 million state-of-the-art MRI scanner at a city hospital.

Johnny was invited to BMI Thornbury Hospital in Sheffield, where he had a hip replacement.

Medics at the private hospital said the scanner will improve imaging for muscular and joint problems and will deliver new services including breast and vascular imaging.

Whole body scanning for cancer patients and abdominal imaging for liver and bowel conditions will also be carried out.
