"It doesn't really do it justice the height of it from the drone – it was probably about 10 or 11m up," Sherwood explained. "The landing was probably about five metres so it wasn't a straight fall from that height."

The Red Bull-backed star is vowing not to try and come back too soon and risk complications.

"Hopefully towards the end of the year I will be back on my bike. I want to get back on my bike as soon as possibly I can but I also don't want to have any problems with my foot again so I will take my time and do it right."
