Jeremy Renner has shared an update on his recovery seven weeks after he was almost killed by a snow plough.
The Marvel actor posted a short clip of an “electric simulation workout” to boost muscle strength in his leg in the wake of the accident. He accompanied the video with The Beatles song Lady Madonna.
Renner, 52, spent two weeks in intensive care after breaking more than 30 bones in a near-fatal snow plough accident on New Year’s Day.
The Hollywood star was reportedly using his own PistenBully snow plough to help move his nephew’s stuck car from his driveway near Reno, Nevada.
But when the six-tonne plough began to slide down a hill, Renner leapt out of his cab before being dragged underneath the vehicle.

Authorities said the vehicle may have had mechanical issues.
The Hawkeye actor shared an update on his condition last month after being allowed to recover at home.

He wrote: “I want to thank EVERYONE for their messages and thoughtfulness for my family and I… Much love and appreciation to you all.”
“These 30 plus broken bones will mend, grow stronger, just like the love and bond with family and friends deepens. Love and blessings to you all.”
