Birmingham City Football Club's chief executive Karren Brady is making excellent progress after brain surgery, the club said yesterday.
Ms Brady moved out of intensive care on Saturday and was back recovering on a general ward yesterday.
The 36-year-old had a three-and-a-half hour operation to treat an aneurysm at a north London hospital on Friday.
A spokesman for Birmingham City said: "There were no problems and Karren is now back on the ward and doing very well.
Karren would like to thank Mr Ian Sabin, Dr Paul Butler and their medical teams at the hospital for looking after her so well.
Additionally, she would also like to pay tribute to all the nurses who have done such a terrific job in making her stay as comfortable as possible."
Ms Brady was admitted to a high dependency unit and monitored overnight following her operation on Friday.
Surgeons "stented" the swollen blood vessel using tiny platinum coils to block the flow of blood, to prevent it from bursting.
A ruptured aneurysm can be fatal and can also lead to a stroke.
