Walter Swinburn has been allowed to leave intensive care as he continues to make steady progress since receiving head injuries, broken ribs and bruised lungs in a life-threatening fall in Hong Kong.

Bernhard Hargreaves, the chief stipendiary steward of the Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club, said: "He is making progress and improving day by day. I saw him this morning and he is well on the way to recovery. Hopefully, he will be out of hospital in a week or a week and a half."
