Laura Woods has pulled out of hosting Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk after revealing she suffered a freak accident.

The TNT Sports host was noticeable missing from yesterday’s weigh-in coverage and the press conference earlier in the week.

And now in a post on Instagram she has revealed she suffered a horror injury while on holiday with boyfriend Adam Collard.

She says she accidentally smashed a glass lampshade above her head, causing it to shatter and cut her face and arm and has posted photos of her injuries.

She wrote on Instagram: “Just wanted to explain my absence from the telly for a little while, to be totally transparent and avoid any speculation.

“I had an accident last weekend at a holiday cottage. I swung a pillow and hit a large, glass lampshade hanging from the ceiling above me, which shattered and cut my face and arms, but luckily missed my eye.

“I wanted to say a couple of thank yous, firstly to Adam, for being my hero that day, acting so quickly and not leaving my side since and to his family for taking care of me in a time when I was petrified.

“To my agents Alex Maguire and Matthew Odonohue at CAA who searched for the best help immediately.

“To Dr Yannis Alexandrides and his wonderful medical assistant Zuzanna at 111 who opened their emergency surgery and came in on their days off, they were so gentle and have already worked magic that I didn’t think was possible to reduce the damage.

“I’ve added in the photos from then to now to show that even though it may look rough, it’s such a wonderful improvement already and I’m so grateful.

“It was a hell of a shock and I’ve been a bit sad, but I’m feeling very lucky it wasn’t worse. So a big thanks to my eyebrow too, for taking the brunt of it.

“I’m gutted I can’t cover the fight in Riyadh tomorrow anymore, but wishing the brilliant TNT boxing team all the best. Be back soon xx.”
