Ukip MEP Steven Woolfe has said he is "feeling brighter" after being rushed to hospital with a suspected brain injury.
Mr Woolfe was taken to a Strasbourg hospital on Thursday following reports he was involved in an "altercation" with another party MEP.
Nigel Farage had said that the 49-year-old, a contender for the Ukip leadership, was in a "serious" condition.
But Mr Woolfe later released a statement from hospital, saying: "The CT scan has shown that there is no blood clot in the brain.
"At the moment I am feeling brighter, happier, and smiling as ever."
He said he is being kept in hospital overnight "awaiting secondary tests to make sure everything is fine".
I would like everyone to know that the parliamentary staff, the UKIP MEPs with me and hospital staff have been brilliant. Their care has been exceptional. I am sitting up, and said to be looking well. The only consequence at the moment is a bit of numbness on the left hand side of my face.
Sources told ITV News that "bruises consistent with a punch" were found by a team of independent experts.
Mike Hookem insisted he acted in self-defence during a "scuffle" with Ukip leadership favourite Steven Woolfe.
As Ukip and the European Parliament investigate the 'altercation' between Steven Woolfe and Mike Hookem, what could the repercussions be?
