Scottish rugby legend and MND campaigner Doddie Weir was in Dundee recently to meet and sign a sculpture designed in his honour.
The 48-year-old, who suffers from MND, signed the Oor Doddie statue at the city’s Olympia swimming pool Olympia.

It was designed by Kingspark art teacher Graham Farquhar as a tribute to Weir, who played as a lock and made 61 international appearances for Scotland.
The statue is part of the recently-launched Scotland-wide Big Bucket Trail, which follows the success of the first three years ago in Dundee.
