Poorly TV presenter Charlie Webster has vowed to read the "thousands of messages of love and support" she has received after contracting malaria in Brazil.
The 33-year-old Team GB ambassador has had her dialysis treatment reduced, her management said.
The former Sky and ITV sports presenter fell seriously ill following a gruelling 3,000-mile charity cycle ride, having arrived in Rio a few days earlier. Webster was admitted to hospital, where doctors initially thought she was dehydrated.
However, her condition deteriorated after she developed a severe complication from a bacterial infection.
In a message to her nearly 80,000 Twitter followers, Webster said: "I'm told I have thousands of messages of love and support to read once I'm better, so thank you very much.
"The last 16 days have been hell - although I don't remember most of them:)
"I am getting stronger each day and look forward to watching all the Olympic highlights; I hear #TeamGB have triumphed!"
A spokesman for Webster said: "Over the weekend, Charlie's kidneys responded well to treatment and the dialysis has been reduced to around six hours a day.
"The goal now is to get Charlie stronger and fly her home to the UK as soon as possible."
