He continued: "I dusted off the push bike and soon realised the studios were up long climb (for me). Anyway I was a bit late but home now and glad of the exercise."
Jonnie was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in 2020 and has been throwing himself into his career ever since. In November last year, he shared a heart breaking update that the cancer had spread to his brain.
Most recently, Jonnie revealed he had been battling a chest infection that had affected him particularly badly. He admitted that he had to have oxygen given to him in order to help him breathe.
But despite only being given six months to live when he first received his diagnosis, Jonnie has fought back against the disease, having undergone numerous treatments to keep his condition stable. Loyal fans have been showering the presenter with praise for being so resilient.
One fan took to the comments section of the new snap to give him props: "The fact you got and smashed the chest infection, proves how strong & resilient you are my friend!!" A second user also sent their regards: "You look so well Jonnie. Lovely to see you' got over your chest infection. Sending love and light to you and your family."
A third viewer paid tribute to Jonnie's strength, commenting: "Your positivity and courage and tenacity is inspiring. Wish you and your family all the best." Whilst another fan gushed: "You're a strong guy Jonnie, love your positivity."
