A woman who became the first in the world to receive a double hand transplant has left hospital.

A team of surgeons at Hospital La Fe in Valencia carried out the pioneering operation.

Alba Lucia, 47, originally from Columbia, who had the 10-hour operation on November 30, said she was "very happy and enormously satisfied".

But seriously now, the well travelled know full well that France has long led the world in handjobs, but let's all wish Alba Godspeed anyway.
