Young Kiwi shotputter Jacko Gill has been involved in a freak accident while recovering from a foot injury.

Gill injured his foot during competition last month, spraining it in three different places.

But, his father Walter Gill said his son is a mess thanks to another incident.

"He was breaking up a dog fight and he's been bitten in the face by a dog and he's just had a couple of days in hospital," Walter Gill said.

"It's not going well, he can't lift or do anything at the moment because he's got a lot of stitches in the face, around his eyes."

Walter Gill said Jacko will find out his ankle recovery plan tomorrow.
