“I had a tooth taken out because it was chipped and it got infected,” he told The Guardian.

“I was in a bit of pain, but went for a run, and when I came back from a run I literally collapsed on the bathroom floor, completely knocked out.

“I had my phone in my pocket, so when I woke up and became conscious I called Cam [Levins], my training partner, and he came round and got me on to my bed.

“I was in so much pain from my stomach, and so he called an ambulance and it took me to hospital.
