Broadcaster Dan Walker said he is “glad to be alive” after getting hit by a car while cycling.

The 45-year-old former BBC Breakfast presenter shared a series of images of his bloodied face while sitting in an ambulance, alongside a selfie with the NHS staff who were caring for him.

Walker tweeted: “Bit of an accident this morning. Glad to be alive after getting hit by a car on my bike. Face is a mess but I don’t think anything is broken.

“Thanks to Shaun and Jamie for sorting me out and the lovely copper at the scene. This is my smiling. Thankful for our NHS.”

A number of Walkers’ colleagues and fans shared their well-wishes with him after his post.

“Oh wow! Get well soon,” Strictly Come Dancing star Motsi Mabuse replied.
