    Glad to see him on the mend, could have been so different for the guy.

    That’s crazy looks like a completely different person. He was in far better nick when he came round the first time, so disappointing that he decided to spar again.

    28 years old. I forgot he was so young. He's a tough man, I hope we hear about him in years to come as one of those guys doctors thought would never walk again, but who went on to make a real success of themselves.

    That was tough to watch despite its positive message.

    Echoing the sentiments others have offered... not much to add aside from wish him all the best.

    Good on him. Do wish he hadn’t sparred again as that is sad to see but easy to say in hindsight. From my own situation I can empathise with him doing that even if it was silly given what happened.

    Amazing that he’s soldiering on and making the most of life...how many of us do Biggar all with far better opportunities.

    Best of luck to him with the half marathon...given me some inspiration for training that’s for sure...

    He was at a weigh in a year or so ago wasn't he? Seems to have improved from how he was then. Hope his recovery continues.

    Compared to how he was this is AMAZING so for me this a positive update not a negative one.
