He said the pain was unbearable and he couldn’t get in to see a physio anywhere

Colson added: “I ran on Christmas Day, which might not have been the smartest move in hindsight.

“It’s pain you can cope with and then it’s not pain you can cope with. It’s weird.

“It just isn’t right. It’s annoying, and it’s really, really frustrating.”
