The model broke her fibula while playing tennis with her boyfriend Zach Desmond back in April and has been documenting her recovery on social media since.

Taking to her Instagram stories, the 30-year-old proudly announced that her “big smelly boot is finally off” and added that she can’t wait to be able to do some outdoor activities again.

Roz told her followers: “This day five weeks ago, I broke my leg. I broke my shoelace, I wasn’t even doing anything exciting, and today I got the news that my boot is off!

“My big smelly boot is finally off. It stank. Oh, it smelled. So, I’m delighted that the smelly boot is off.

“My bone, even though it’s still very much broken, it’s healing. It’s healing right on time.

“So, I’m able to go back cycling, swimming, can kind of walk on flat ground and the extent of my lower body workout is a few calf raises.

"But listen, I’ll take it. A few more weeks and there’ll be no stopping me.”

Last week, the Tipperary native admitted that her accident happened because she tripped over her shoelace on the tennis court.

Speaking to her followers on camera, she said: “I don’t think I ever went into detail about my fall because I just was like… It was just a really unfortunate fall.

“I actually tripped over my lace,” Roz confessed.

“So, you know when you were younger and your parents would be like, ‘Make sure you tie your laces, tie that lace or you’ll break your leg?’

“I am actually going to be the one parent that it happened to, who says it to their kid,” she laughed.
