Scott and Leanne Beasant took legal action against tour operator Cosmos Holidays after their stay at the Summer Island Village Hotel in the Indian Ocean islands in November 2008 resulted in them both contracting severe food poisoning.
Mr Beasant was diagnosed with salmonella upon returning to the UK after losing 21 lbs in just five days due to the extent of his symptoms, while his wife needed three months off work as her diarrhoea, abdominal cramps and sickness remained.
As a result of their illness, the couple had to put back their scheduled IVF treatment and Mr Beasant claims it also reduced his chances of making the grade as a professional rugby league player.
He told the South Wales Argus: "We were both absolutely terrified as to what was happening to us."
