Sebastian Goold from Wansford, near Peterborough, was travelling with team mates from Stamford Rugby Club from a mini-rugby tournament at Holt, north Norfolk, at 3.45pm on Sunday, when he fell from an exit door on the coach, sustaining serious injuries.

"We would like to pass on our gratitude and thanks to friends and associates at Stamford Rugby Club, and to the wider rugby family, for their well wishes and prayers at what is a deeply distressing time. We have received further messages of support from lots of other people, wishing Sebastian well, and these too have been gratefully received.

"However our focus, at this time, remains on keeping a vigil at Sebastian’s bedside and we ask that we are left alone to deal with this as a family and that the media accepts this as our only, but sincerest, statement on the matter.”
