The four times superbike champion, who retired from the circuit in 2000, was taking part in last weekend's Dirt Quake festival when he suffered what he described as 'a little crash'.

He was airlifted to hospital with two broken ribs a punctured lung and a broken shoulder blade.

Today he was back at his home in Lancashire. He said: 'I'm doing OK. Back at home now chillin' out and healing.'

Earlier Mr Fogarty tweeted a picture of himself taking some fresh air, still hooked up to a saline drip and other hospital equipment.
