He's been back in training for two months after a period of inactivity following toe surgery.

Wearing tight Tommy Hilfiger underwear, the bearded sportsman shows off an impressive six pack along with bulging thigh and torso muscles.
The snap is in stark contrast to the earlier picture, taken just two months ago where he complains he looks like a 'melted wheelie bin.'
'My body is looking less like a melted wheelie bin and a little more in shape,' he wrote in a post on his website. 'So all in all, I am in a very positive place.'
The England star was expected to be out of action for four to six months following the operation on his toe earlier this summer.

'There is still a long way to go,' he adds. 'However and of course we are all different but for me personally, I find by taking one day at a time and creating mini-goals for myself, it keeps me upbeat and positive. In other words mentally sound!'
James goes on to reveal he now weighs 121 kgs and has reduced his body fat from 28 per cent to 11 per cent.
He credited fellow diet and fitness fan Chloe for helping keep him on the straight and narrow.
'I haven’t had any cheat meals or an alcoholic drink for three months now,' he revealed. 'Initially I got some sugar cravings, but due to the large amount of food I am able to eat, this has not really been a problem.

'So although always delighted to share everything with my readers and followers, I won’t be sharing her!'
The previous day, James was spotted out with Chloe for a casual lunch - the couple both looked as if they'd returned from the gym.
Although the rugby star was well covered up with a T-shirt, he still managed to show off his bulging muscles in a charcoal T-shirt.
