Paralysed jockey Freddy Tylicki has tweeted about the “long road in front of me” following his fall at Kempton last month.

Tylicki was injured after a four-horse pile-up and is in intensive care at St George’s Hospital in Tooting.

In his first public communication since the accident, the 30-year-old said he was “struggling and fighting”.

He also thanked people for their support, with a fund having raised more than £270,000 so far.

Tylicki was paralysed from the waist down following the incident, with champion jockey Jim Crowley and Ted Durcan suffering minor injuries. A fourth jockey, Steve Drowne, and all the horses, were unhurt.
