FORMER Team Sky cyclist Greg Henderson showed off an incredible protruding scar on his thigh after he had 500ml of pus withdrawn from a horror wound.

The New Zealander, 42, was bed ridden in hospital with a gruesome injury in January on his quadricep.

Henderson required an incision on the wound four months ago and shared sickening images of the gash on Instagram — which are displayed below.

And now, four months later, he has snapped and shared pictures of his healed leg, with a six-inch scar.

Remarkably, Henderson is back on his bike after the injury and is back to doing what he loves best, even if his pro riding days are over.

He captioned the image: “Basically brand new.

“Who doesn’t believe in evolution! I have evolved a new quad muscle. Ahhhh… quin muscle? #marginalgains.

“Can anyone tell me what has happened here? I’d actually love to know exactly.”

NEW QUAD

At the time of the injury, despite not explaining how he sustained it, he said: “After 4wks (sic) of suffering and not being able to weight bare I finally made it to hospital to have 500ml of puss drained and my left quad muscle cleaned and drained.
“One last operation now to drain and clean some more and sew it back up.”

He rode for Sir Dave Brailsford’s outfit in 2010 and 2011 alongside Bradley Wiggins, an unknown Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas.

He also rode with Mark Cavendish for HTC Highroad when the Manx Missile made his debut before joining Sky and was a world and Commonwealth champion on the track.

Henderson now acts as endurance performance director at USA Cycling.
