EastEnders star Adam Woodyatt has shared his pride after his son Sam Woodyatt took part in the cheerleading world championships.
Sam, 19, was involved in a shocking car accident in 2016 that left him fighting for his life.
He was knocked down by a car as he crossed a road, and was taken to hospital in an air ambulance and put in an induced coma.
Adam, who has played Ian Beale on the BBC soap since it began, said on Twitter: “We are all so proud of @SamJWoodyatt.
“19 months ago he got hit by a car at 56mph, somehow he survived. He was put in an induced coma by @LDNairamb and spent 8 weeks in a wheelchair.
“His recovery never ceases to amaze us… Tonight he is taking part in #CheerWorlds2018 (sic)”.

The 49 year old previously revealed what Sam was having to go through for his recovery process.
“He got hit by a car back in September, the London Air Ambulance came out to him and put him in an induced coma for two days, a five-hour op to rebuild his pelvis,” he told the Press Association.
“He was in a wheelchair for eight weeks, had to learn to walk again which he did really quickly, then he had to run which he did really, really quickly.”
The father son duo even competed in the London Marathon last year, raising money for the air ambulance.
They ran the first mile of the marathon together, but Sam finished three hours ahead of his dad, who crossed the finish line after seven hours.
Sam completed the run in an impressive four hours and 24 minutes.
