Biffy Clyro frontman Simon Neil has told NME that he thought he'd broken his leg after his onstage slip at Glastonbury.

The singer, who mocked the injury he sustained two weeks ago by coming onstage aided by bassist James Johnston during last night's (July 11) T In The Park performance, admitted that he thought he'd really "fucked up" his leg up after he jumped off a speaker and landed awkwardly. Watch him talking about the incident in the video on the right now.

"My leg is still a bit sore but I can use it," Neil told NME just before their Main Stage slot. "I am walking, it did not break in two places but it felt like it did."

Despite the injury, the singer said he recovered quickly and had no problems playing a series of warm-up gigs in the build up to T.

"We were having a great gig at Glastonbury and I just tried to jump as high as I could and I didn't think about landing," he explained of the incident further. "My upper body just went whooooof and my knees just both twisted."

He jokingly added: "I got up and walked two steps and then I was like, 'Boys, help, I can't walk'. So the ligaments in the back of my leg got all twisted and I thought I'd really fucked them up. But a few days later it wasn't too bad. I was just trying to be a bit too rock 'n' roll."

"The weirdest thing was someone managed to find a bag of frozen peas," added Johnston. "I don't know why somebody had a bag of frozen peas at Glastonbury."
