The actor underwent an operation followed by two weeks of rehabilitation, causing delays to filming the upcoming Bond film.
The official Twitter account for Bond 25 released a statement concerning his injuries at the time, writing: ‘Daniel Craig will be undergoing minor ankle surgery resulting from an injury sustained during filming in Jamaica.
‘Production will continue whilst Craig is rehabilitating for two weeks post-surgery. The film remains on track for the same release date in April 2020’.
The British star is said to have flown to New York City for treatment, but was thought to be ‘furious’ that he injured himself after months of gruelling preparation for the role.

Filming was also said to have also been affected by Rami Malek’s busy schedule as the actor had other filming commitments while Daniel was being treated for his injuries.
Detailing the actor’s filming clashes, a source said: ‘Filming was meant to finish in September but now it’s been pushed back to late October, early November.’
‘But they still need to find a time for Daniel and Rami to film together – 007 must come face-to-face with the villain. It’s a complete logitical nightmare,’ an insider told The Sun.
Award-winning star Rami plays the villain in the long awaited film, which is scheduled for release on April 3, 2020.
