Jeremy Renner’s Marvel co stars have led tributes to the “hard as nails” actor, as he continues to recover from a serious accident.

Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Chris Pratt and Paul Bettany, were among those sending love and well wishes to the 51-year-old, following the recent incident.

Renner was airlifted to hospital on Sunday after suffering “blunt chest trauma and orthopaedic injuries” after being run over by his own six-tonne snowplough.
