JOCKEY Freddy Tylicki is miraculously walking again thanks to two robot legs — three years after a fall nearly killed him

JOCKEY Freddy Tylicki is miraculously walking again thanks to two robot legs — three years after a fall nearly killed him.

Brave Tylicki, 33, was paralysed in October 2016 after a four-horse pile-up at Kempton. 

 

Brave Freddy Tylicki has been learning to walk again after his horrific accident.

 

And in his heartwarming social media video, the German-born jockey can be seen slowly walking with the help of a robotic exoskeleton to support his limbs.

He posted it alongside the simple message: “Nice day to take a walk.”

The long road to recovery has been arduous, but Tylicki’s latest video is a huge cause for hope he can achieve mobility.

He was paralysed from the waist down following the life-changing fall, which prompted the racing world to rally around him.

Tylicki was airlifted to St George’s Hospital in Tooting, South London and spent 15 days in intensive care.

He then moved to the London Spinal Cord Injury Centre in Stanmore.

Around £276,000 has been raised on a GoFundMe page for Tylicki after ITV At The Races presenter Matt Chapman got fans to throw in their cash.

Chapman was one of the first to congratulate Tylicki, tweeting: “You absolute legend. So proud of you man.”

Tylicki has recently appeared on Sky TV, joining Alex Hammond at Royal Ascot.

He has also started a new career as an owner, and had his first winner when Mary Salome won in Cork in October 2018.

Speaking in December 2016, Tylicki said: “I remember everything. I remember every little detail about the fall.

“But I don’t remember being taken to hospital as the boys tell me I was knocked out. I just woke up in intensive care.
