Barnsley forward Iain Hume has left hospital after undergoing surgery.

Hume had his skull fractured by an elbow from Sheffield United's Chris Morgan during the south Yorkshire derby on November 8.

Hume, who required emergency surgery and also suffered internal bleeding, is not expected to play again this season.

The Canadian international showed off his wounds in a television interview today.

The 25-year-old told Sky Sports News: 'I'm not too bad. I am home and I get to spend time with my family, so it is just good to be out of hospital and to be on the path to getting fit again.

'It is a serious injury but I am well and on the road to recovery. I look forward to getting back.'

Hume has to return to hospital for a reassessment in eight weeks' time.
