Good news!

After his terrible accident earlier this month, Sir Stirling Moss has recovered enough to be released from hospital, and was discharged to his Mayfair home last Friday.

The greatest driver never to have won the Formula 1 World Championship will continue his recovery at home, having suffered broken ankles, four chipped vertebrae and severe bruising after falling down his elevator shaft at home just days before the season-opening Bahrain GP.

"It was only three floors," he joked when retelling the accident to The Daily Mail. "It was all over so quickly, there was no time for any screaming. It was my own fault – if I had looked before stepping in, none of this would have happened. Of all the accidents I’ve had over the years, this is the most annoying.

"If they took an X-ray of my whole body with all its plates, pins and rawlplugs, it would look like something from an art collection…my guardian angel has certainly been busy over the years."

And you are indeed a lucky man to be3 alive to tell the tale, Stirling!
