Brian May has shared that he's been "crawling around the house on [his] hands and knees" after damaging a buttock muscle during some "over-enthusiastic" gardening last month, as well as suffering a heart attack.

Revealing his accident last month, the Queen star told fans he wouldn't be able to walk for a while after sustaining the injury which had left him in "relentless" pain.

"Just a quick word. I finally managed to get to the music room. I'm recovering slowly. I'm still crawling around the house on my hands and knees, not very rock star like," he divulged in the health update on Wednesday evening.

Last month also saw May share that he had to undergo surgery to fit three stents after suffering a "small" heart attack where he said he "could have died".

"I turned out to have three arteries that were congested and in danger of blocking the supply of blood to my heart," he said in a video at the time.

In his most recent message, the 72-year-old went on to reflect on the 18th anniversary of the Queen's Golden Jubilee and also expressed his desire to work again in the future.

"It's amazing that 18 years ago I was on top of Buckingham Palace, the loneliest place in the world, playing God Save The Queen and terrified out my wits but it's one of those times when you face the fear and you're never quite the same after it.

"Wishing you all luck and hoping that one day I'll be functional and I'll be out there and we can do some more great stuff, maybe? God bless,” he went on.
