Daniel Craig snapped in gym preparing for James Bond return after injury
The star underwent ‘minor ankle surgery’ after he was injured while filming in Jamaica last month.
James Bond star Daniel Craig has been snapped at the gym preparing for his 007 return.
The star, 51, underwent “minor ankle surgery” after he was injured while filming the role in Jamaica last month.
Now the film franchise’s official Twitter account has posted an image of Craig working out, saying he will be filming again shortly.
“007 Daniel Craig hitting the gym hard at Pinewood Studios, prepping for shooting next week!,” the account said.
The black and white snap showed Craig in t-shirt and tracksuit pants with his injured foot in a special ankle boot.
Earlier this month, a “controlled explosion” at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire left one worker with “minor injuries”.
Health and safety chiefs said they were looking into the incident.
