Charlie Webster has given fans an update on her health, after contracting a rare strain of malaria in South America last year.

The Sky Sports presenter collapsed in Rio De Janeiro in August shortly after completing a 300-mile charity cycle ride, and when the severity of her condition was revealed, doctors decided to medically induce a coma.

Now, Charlie has revealed that she suffers flashbacks to that time, explaining that when she went for her first run since learning to walk again, the physical effects on her body led to flashbacks.

Charlie is remaining defiant though, determined to overcome the mental obstacles standing in her way.

The presenter has also revealed that she hasn’t cycled since the charity ride. She added: “I haven’t sat on a bike for the whole time yet and it’s getting worse in my head.
