John McGuinness has cast doubt in his involvement at this year's TT after revealing he's suffered a setback while recovering from a broken leg.

The 23-time TT winner hasn't raced since crashing at the North West 200 last May, but had been due to race for Norton, MD Racing, KMR and Mugen at TT this year.

Last month, McGuinness confirmed the external fixator had been removed from his lower leg, but he'd now revealed on Twitter that he's had a setback.

Although he hasn't indicated what impact the setback will have on his racing schedule, McGuinness apologised for not saying anything sooner as he'd been trying to get his head around it all, and that he's gutted.
