Wolves striker Iwelumo grateful to NASA for fitness boost

Wolves striker Chris Iwelumo is playing Premiership football thanks to NASA!

Scottish international Iwelumo, 31, broke a metatarsal in his foot in pre-season in Australia and has only come back in the last week.

Iwelumo said: "An airbag was used to help in my recovery when I was on the treadmill.

"NASA built it so astronauts could actually breathe in space.

"I worked really hard and came back good and strong. When I knew what was ahead of me, I took it on the chin."
