A streaker who stormed last year’s Champions League final has broken her ankle following a skydiving accident.

Kinsey Wolanski ran onto the pitch during Liverpool 's 2-0 win over Tottenham in June as she wore a revealing costume.

Her moment in the spotlight helped her amass a staggering 3.6million followers on Instagram.

And she’s revealed her recent bad news on that particular platform.

She wrote: "For all those asking how I broke my ankle. It was a really windy day skydiving and I dropped 20ft straight onto my ankle on the landing."

Footage shows her lying on the ground in agony before medics wrap up her ankle.

Her fans online were concerned for her wellbeing and flooded the comments section with positive messages.

One wrote: "You're so brave, I hope you get better soon."

Meanwhile, another said: "Get well soon."

After streaking in the final, the 23-year-old said: “By the time I’m 30 I plan on making enough money to retire, and streaking at the Champions League will only help me achieve that.

“I plan to do a lot more streaking to raise my profile.

“After I was released from jail I had gone from 300,000 followers on Instagram to over two million. You can’t buy that kind of publicity.

“Suddenly I was famous all over the world and had job offers flooding in. I don’t think I did anyone any harm, it was just a bit of fun.

“The fans loved it, the players seemed to love it and even the police at the station were asking for my photograph by the time I got out.

"The response has been unbelievable, I couldn’t be happier. It was the biggest thrill of my life.”

Wolanski is known for performing outrageous stunts around the world.

It doesn't sound like that's about to end any time soon.
