A Mississippi firefighter who received the world's most extensive face transplant after a burning building collapsed on him says he "now has hope" for the first time in 15 years.

Patrick Hardison can now eat, see, hear and breathe normally - thanks to last year's surgery.

He also has a full head of hair again and hits the gym twice a week.
