Hi Everyone, I hope this finds you well.
This is just a quick note to let you know that I’m currently dealing with a health issue that requires me to step back from social media and public interaction for a brief while. No need for panic and I’ll be fine but I need some time and space to heal and get back to full health. I’ll share in greater detail down the track but for now, I just wanted to reach out, say hi and explain my recent absence. I won’t be responding to comments for a while but just know that I truly appreciate all the love, support and kindness that comes my way. See you soon and God Bless.
Love Josh. 💪🏼 #love #joy #peace

We really hope the big Australian makes it to the Olympia as if he comes in the condition as he was in Spain, he should have no problem placing in the top 5.
