Cardiff Blues say Owen Williams is making positive progress as he recovers from a serious neck injury.
The Wales international needed an operation after suffering cervical vertebrae and spinal cord damage during last month's inaugural World Club 10s competition in Singapore.
Williams remains in the Welsh Spinal Injuries and Neurological Rehabilitation Unit at Rookwood Hospital in Cardiff, and his club have issued an update on his condition.
"Owen will be progressing to sitting up over the coming few weeks," a statement read.
"While it's still early days in his recovery, Owen remains positive and overwhelmed by the messages of support from around the world.
"Owen and his family would like to thank the media for their support and the continued respect of his privacy."
