"There is a bit of blood on the wall next to Mondialiste's box.
"Whether he caught it there or grazed it, we're not sure. It's a bit of a mystery as to how he got out.
"There's a chance they may just stitch it back up or he might just need a bandage after cleaning out any infection.
"He should be able to fly (on Sunday) back to the UK."
