Surprisingly the best news from Wellington wasn’t the Lions win – that came second.
The recovery of Sir Ian McGeechan topped even the defeat of the All Blacks by a Lions side for the first time in 24 years.
Fears over Sir Ian McGeechan have been allayed after the Sky Sports pundit collapsed at Wellington’s Westpac Stadium ahead of the Lions second Test.
The four-time British and Irish Lions head coach, 70, is part of the Sky Sports team covering the tour in New Zealand and fell ill a few hours before kick-off.
He walked to the ambulance and was taken to Wellington Hospital before being discharged on Saturday after precautionary checks.
Hopefully he will be back with Sky Sports for the decider in Auckland next Saturday.
