An Englishman has woken up after a stroke and started speaking fluent Welsh.
His wife Yvonne was the only person who could understand him and had to translate for doctors.
Doctors have diagnosed Mr Morgan with aphasia, a form of brain damage that causes a shift in the language centre of the brain.
Aphasia can also result in a disorder known as Foreign Accent Syndrome, which causes a sudden change to speech so that a native speaker talks with a foreign accent.
