Get username value from comment


I have an automated rule which pulls the last comment and copies it to a custom field called 'Latest Update'.  I am using the latest update field for reporting purposes.  The trouble is when someone mentions somebody by using '@username' all I get is a user id copied to my custom field, is there a way to get the users name instead?

For example the last comment might say

'This issue is now with '@username'

and what I get is

'This issue is now with [~accountid:hr23ir83hreivehverhu]' 

the smart value I'm using is this {{issue.comments.last.body}}
