North Melbourne ruckman Majak Daw has penned an open letter on the North Melbourne website, in response to an incident that took place late last year.

Daw fell from a Melbourne bridge in December, and has today spoken for the first time about the incident.

Here is his open letter in full.

To all our beloved fans and members, I just wanted to thank everyone for their love and support over the past month.

The circumstances surrounding my incident have been extremely challenging for my family, friends and anyone that knows me for that matter.

I’m making huge strides with my recovery, both physically and mentally.

I have been blessed with a second chance at life.

My attitude and outlook towards everything has improved.

I hope to be back out there playing in the blue and white stripes soon.

Thank you all for respecting my need for privacy and for giving me the chance to get better going forward.
