An Exeter man who suffered life-changing injuries during a bomb blast in Afghanistan has returned home from the Invictus Games with seven medals.
Paul Vice is known as the 'Commando who refused to die' after having around 100 injuries in the blast in 2011.
Perhaps what many might find surprising is that Paul says, he has no regrets and there is very little in his life he would change.
I used to, before I got blown up I had a good life but I never used to take every opportunity, you know, oh I'll do that tomorrow, maybe I'll do something but now I just take every opportunity I can and just until you've been killed you don't really know what it's like to be alive.
I'm just so grateful that I'm actually alive so that I can spend time with my amazing wife and children so it makes you think, life is very precious it's not a dress rehearsal.
You get one crack at it and if you're sat at home watching this thinking just doubting yourself, don't, what's the worst that can happen?
You know, just go for it, smash life.

Prince Harry joined injured servicemen, women and veterans as they competed for places on the UK's Invictus Games team.
The athletes have been training hard for the three-day trials which could earn them selection for the Games - now just 100 days away.
Harry has been the driving force behind the Games, first staged in the UK in 2014. They aim to challenge wounded, sick or injured service personnel, and those who have left the Armed Forces, to strive for sporting excellence.
The trials at the University of Bath Sports Training Village will select the UK's team for the upcoming game, held in Orlando in May.
They're are being run by Help for Heroes with support from the Ministry of Defence and The Royal British Legion. Hopeful participants will compete across 10 sports for one of the 100 places available on the UK team.
A Plymouth based former Royal Marine has won four gold medals at the Invictus Games. Joe Townsend, who's based at Hasler Company, won the medals in the 100m, 200m, 400m and 1500m in the Men's Wheel IT4 category.
The Invictus Games are for injured service men and women from around the world. They finish in London at the weekend.
I knew that if I did well in the 100m I’d do well throughout. After the first event this morning I was pretty confident. I saw the last guy on the finishing straight of the 1500m and had in mind if I don’t lap him I’ve not done my job. It’s great to be in the team; I’m competing for my country in the sporting field now, not the battlefield.
