Paul Tapner progressing well after brain bleed caused by fall

Badminton winner Paul Tapner is progressing well after sustaining bleeds on the brain and a mild stroke in a fall a week ago.

The Australian eventer, who won Badminton 2010 on Inonothing, had a fall out hacking on 5 August and scans found he had two small bleeds on his brain, one of which had caused a mild stroke. In a further update on his condition yesterday (Tuesday, 11 August), Paul’s wife Georgina said “medically he is good, physically he aches, and mentally he is improving”. “His long-term memory is very good, but his short-term memory from the day of the accident until yesterday is sketchy,” she said. “Today however he is remembering things like what he has eaten, why he is in hospital and what he needs to do to get better.He is likely to remain in hospital for a little longer before he can start his program of rehabilitation.”
