Greg Rutherford has given a health update after a “significant injury” forced him to withdraw from the Dancing On Ice finale.

The retired athlete shared a photo from his hospital bed on Monday, writing “recovery sort of starts now” after being taken for treatment hours before the live ITV show on Sunday night.

He added: “After a pretty rough first night, I’m looking forward to getting everything sorted and sewn up so I can get back to normal.”

The 37-year-old was unable to perform with professional partner Vanessa James leaving Made In Chelsea star Miles Nazaire, broadcaster Adele Roberts, and soap star Ryan Thomas to battle it out for the title.

In the end, it was Thomas, 39, and his skating partner Amani Fancy who went on to win the 2024 series, with the former Coronation Street actor dedicating the trophy to Rutherford.

Earlier on Sunday, the Olympian posted a video on Instagram that appeared to show he was in an ambulance.

“I know this looks very dramatic, and everything else,” he said.

“Sadly, I picked up a big injury in rehearsals. I’m on my way to the hospital so I will not be performing on Dancing On Ice tonight.

“I am devastated but these things happen. So stay tuned, we’ll keep you updated. What a nightmare way for this to finish.”

He later thanked everyone for their messages of support, and congratulated Thomas on his win.

“Well done brother, I’m glad I’ve got a friend for life in you,” he said, adding: “He’s had his fair share of ups and downs during his process, so to come out winning is utterly spectacular.”

Rutherford had been top of the leaderboard going into the show’s finale, and was dubbed as the second favourite to win by gambling site William Hill.

Before retiring from sport in 2018 due to an ankle injury, Rutherford won a gold medal in the long jump at the London 2012 Olympic Games, and a bronze at Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
