As he performed one leg jumps on and off a step, he captioned the clip: "Lots of people asking how the knee is so I thought I’d post a couple of clips from today. I’m 5 months post #ACL surgery and still working hard with @symmetryperformance. Things are def getting more dynamic which is exciting.

"It’s incredible how these simple moves take so much concentration and trust in the knee being strong enough. I’m starting to run faster, but still in short bursts, but the real focus is on lunges, deadlifts and building my quad back up- which still looks like a sad deflated saggy whoopie cushion compared to the good leg! It’s getting there though. Just trying to stay patient.

"The most exciting news is I’m starting to swing a golf club again- cautiously of course, but I’m hoping to be embarrassing myself on a tee somewhere very soon! #rehab #aclrecovery #physio."

Ben first shared the news of his injury on Instagram Stories. "Hi there everybody," he said. "Thank you for all the amazing love and messages. For those who didn't know I ruptured my ACL and tore my meniscus in my knee playing football.

"They've repaired the ACL and the meniscus and now starts the rehab, the very slow, long rehab. However, I have to say, the painkillers seem to be doing the job right now."
