"There is a very small chance I will make no recovery and a very small chance I will make a full recovery," he said in his post.

"Much more likely it will be somewhere in between. To what extent depends on the extent of the damage (which we can't see) and how well I rehab."

A spinal stroke is a disruption in the blood supply to the spinal cord and five-time world champion Reed says doctors do not know what caused his.

"It was in the middle of my spine so I'm currently paralysed beneath my chest," said Reed, who retired from rowing last year.

"My arms are still strong and my brain is still as average as it ever was."
