But Kaz – who took part in last year’s Love Island – has hailed her beau “brave and positive” after the incident.

She shared a sweet picture of her cradling her lover while in the hospital bed together on her Instagram Story.

The post read: “It’s been a hard 24 hours no one here speaks English and he was taken for hours at one point and I had no clue he was in surgery again.

“I’ve stayed in his room over night and just want to take him home.  He’s so brave and positive.”

The track athlete has since updated his fans on Twitter that he has been told by medical staff it is “unlikely” he will be able to see again after having seven stitches in his eye.

He tweeted: “I currently have 7 stitches in my eye (gross) and the doctors say it’s unlikely I’ll see properly again, they done a good job saving it as they said I might loose my whole eye to begin with.

“But Im hopeful and don’t want to believe my eye is gone forever. Anything is possible.”
