Here's hoping he makes a full recovery!

Yeah i see a pic of him in a hospital bed a couple of days ago on Instagram but there was no explanation as to what he had done. It's a big injury, hope he fully recovers.

Damaged his T9 & T10 vertebrae in his back, and his spinal chord has also been injured..... Really not good, and recovery isnt a dead cert. :(

Was gutted when i heard about this, and its been a couple of weeks now i think, with no more news...... Hope it turns out well.
Healing vibes being sent.
