British aerial skier Lloyd Wallace has returned home and claims he is suffering from "just a sore head" after his serious accident in Switzerland earlier this month.

Wallace, a bronze medallist at the 2015 World Junior Championships, sustained a "severe" head injury during the incident and was initially in a light coma.

The 22-year-old was airlifted to a hospital in Zurich following the crash, which occurred in Mettmenstetten.

Wallace was released after spending a week in hosptal and is now beginning his rehabilitation. 

The University of Bath student wrote on Twitter:  "Home now and luckily no injury, just a sore head. One day at a time, starting with rest and rehab. Thanks for the good wishes #amazingsupport".

Wallace is expected to continue his recovery at Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre in Buckinghamshire.

The incident happened when Wallace fell in the in-run for a big jump and crashed, according to the International Ski Federation.

Wallace, who has been using a crowdfunding page to help his ambition of competing for Britain at the next year's Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, trains full-time with the Swiss aerial skiing team.
