“Thanks for all your messages of support over the past couple of weeks. They’ve really helped to keep my spirits up in what’s been a pretty painful time,” he tweeted.

“I’m making steady progress and being diligent with my physio exercises.

“Also building up my walking and am up to about 18 minutes on my daily walk.

“If you’re giving, receiving, hunting, decorating or eating eggs today – enjoy.”
