Olympic silver medalist, Julius Yego, says he is ready to get back into full gear training after he was discharged from hospital following a freak road accident he was involved in on Sunday.

Yego who sustained minor injuries during the incident that left his brand new Toyota Prado in a total mess was rushed to Eldoret Mediheal Hospital.

Doctors attending to the 27-year-old two-time African javelin champion confirmed that he suffered minor bruises around his chest, legs and neck.

Yego won silver with a throw of 88.24 m at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, despite only throwing once after picking up a right ankle injury.
