The showbiz world was rocked earlier this year when it was announced Jeremy Renner had been involved in a life-threatening snowplough incident.


The 52-year-old actor - who has starred in Hollywood blockbusters such as Arrival, The Hurt Locker, The Bourne Legacy and Marvel's Avengers movies - broke more than 30 bones when he attempted to stop the vehicle from running over his nephew on New Year's Day.

Thankfully, Renner pulled through the traumatic incident - and has now told his heroic story in an interview with US broadcast journalist Diane Sawyer.

The exclusive chat aired on ABC in the US on Thursday 6th April.
