Extract the text value of a combo box referencing people column

Hello,

I am trying to do something seemingly simple, yet am having difficulties achieving it:

 

  1.  Within SharePoint Online, the list column is a Person or Group type.
  2. In PowerApps, this comes across as follows: 
    Combo-box Item = Choices (SharePointList.Column)
  3. I want to pass the display name onto a separate ‘contact details’ screen, so I need to extract the text value of the displayed name...

     

    Does anyone know how to do this?

Apologies, I just solved this myself:

 

First(DataCardValue3.SelectedItems).DisplayName
