"Thank you everyone. On the road to recovery".

Hayden told the Brisbane tabloid, The Courier Mail, that he was knocked on to the sandback on top of his head when he ducked under one of the dozen waves. Then it twisted my head with my own weight and the weight of the wave.

He added, "I wasn't knocked out". He and two colleagues, including former Australia allrounder Andrew Symonds, eventually swam a kilometre to shore.
