I’ve got a trainer who comes to see me. A lot of stretching and boxing thrown in. He puts the gloves on and we do a couple of rounds in the gym, which is really good. It’s a good cardiovascular workout. It keeps me on my toes. I do it twice a week and get in the gym whenever – three times a week usually. Also I try to watch my diet too.

I just didn’t feel good and they said you need antibiotics. So they gave it intravenously and that was it. If it had happened at another time, nobody would have taken any notice.
