Andrew Bolt injured after falling from ladder

Conservative commentator Andrew Bolt has been injured after falling from a ladder.

According to the Herald Sun, Bolt fell almost four metres while gardening at his Melbourne home.

He has injured several ribs and broken his wrist "which has had to be pinned" a news item for the Melbourne tabloid reported.

Bolt was pruning a tree when he fell but landed "on a patch of grass between a concrete bench and path".

Despite the incident, which will delay his return to writing for News Corp papers, he said he "was very fortunate".

"I'm usually good at climbing trees and ladders but my problem was this time I didn't work out a way to have a soft landing or something to grab on to if I fell," he told The Australian.

Bolt was attacked outside a restaurant on Lygon Street last year when he was attending the launch of The Art of the Impossible, a book by RMIT associate professor Steve Kates about Donald Trump and the 2016 US presidential election campaign.

Bolt was pushed in the back before he responded by kicking and punching two men in the face and groin before they walked away.

At the time he called the assault "an example of how dangerous the city has become for conservatives".

Left-wing activists united behind "anti-fascist action" appeared to claim a role in the incident after posting on Facebook that "some of our family in solidarity were attacked by Andrew Bolt while they were protesting".

The media personality, who is no stranger to knocking people or issues down a peg or two, is also due back on air on Sky for his TV show, The Bolt Report. It is understood he will be back in the chair to entertain and inform his average audience of about 27,000 viewers on February 5.
