All members of the British and Irish Lions rugby squad have now received their first COVID-19 vaccinations.
The players gathered in London today to receive the Pfizer jab ahead of their tour to South Africa this summer. Scotland's Finn Russell was the only member not of squad not in attendance, as he was already vaccinated by his club Racing 92.
Leinster's Robbie Henshaw, Tadhg Furlong and Andrew Porter, Jack Conan, Munster's Conor Murray and Tadhg Beirne, Ulster's Iain Henderson and Connacht's Bundee Aki were among the group.
They'll receive their second dose of the vaccine before the end of their pre-tour training camp in Jersey next month.

The proposal was given UK government approval ahead of the Lions' summer tour to South Africa, which is a red list travel destination.
Warren Gatland's side face Japan in a warm-up match at Murrayfield next month before flying out to play the World champion Springboks in a three Test series.
