'I'm no muppet' says Don Williams after serious fall

Former GB hockey Olympian and OC superstar Don Williams is recovering at home after a serious fall while walking on the island of Sark.

Don was following a footpath on August 20 when he fell more than 30 feet down a cliff. He was rescued by the emergency services and rushed to hospital where he spent time in intensive care.

Asked by the local newspaper about the wisdom of walking on the clifftop, Don said: “I’m not a complete muppet tourist, I was following a guide. I don’t recommend anybody else follows it unless it has a rewrite first.”

Recovering his composure, he added: “People have been just brilliant, from the guy who first got there to the doctors here: their willingness to give up their time and their speed, dedication and care have filled me with gratitude and admiration. You don’t see them at work very often until you need them, but these are extraordinary people.”
