Springbok flyhalf Handre Pollard has taken to social media to give an update on his recovery process following a serious knee injury.

The World Cup winner posted a video on his Instagram account where he was working out in the gym and swimming pool, as he continues to recover from a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament.

The 26-year-old sustained the injury while playing for his French club Montpellier in September.

He underwent surgery and is expected to be out of action for six to nine months, which means he is in a race against time to prove his fitness ahead of next year’s British & Irish Lions tour to South Africa starting in early July.

An upbeat Pollard wrote: "5 weeks post operation, feeling great."
