Schapelle Corby’s carefree return to Australia has taken an unfortunate turn, with the convicted drug smuggler being admitted to hospital with an apparent leg injury.
She made the news public on Instagram on Thursday, accompanied by the tags #brokenleg, #brokenankle, #brokenknee.
In the posted photo from her hospital bed, there is no cast on her right leg, while her left is covered by the bedding.
The 39-year-old, who has been a prolific user of Instagram and has accrued 197,000 followers, did not say which hospital she was in, the detail of the injury, or how it was sustained.
‘Hi guys. This is why you haven’t seen me in a while….. #sickbay #brokenleg #brokenankle #brokenknee,’ the caption read.
Her followers have rallied in support, sharing messages to work out how she sustained such a painful injury.
‘No good after all you’ve been through you deserve better you silly little bugger,’ one commenter wrote.
‘Just what you need….not! Hope you make a speedy recovery,’ another added.
The Queensland local had been spending time exploring the north of NSW and previously posted pictures enjoying time at the beach and purchasing fruit from a market stall.
