    On Facebook, he said the injury had happened at a trampoline world.

    He posted this video to Instagram, confirming that his toes do wiggle just fine.

    Today, he began live-tweeting his stay in hospital, apparently through a haze of morphine.

    What a brilliant mix of indescribable pain combined with the spinning of the room. Woweee. What a great combo.

    Think of something funny, laugh, move back: yell in pain, nearly cry. Laugh at sound of crying, more pain, cry louder, laugh louder. #repeat

    Your msgs mean a lot to me. I've had Many painkillers and can't read ATM. Typing this probably took 20 mins. Will respond when brain permits

    Sadly, it seems the powers that be put a stop to the whole thing pretty quickly. But not before Clayton vowed revenge...

    My manager just contacted me to tell me to stop writing things. So I will stop now. But before I go I want you to know this....
