Roche posted a picture on social media of the gruesome looking bite after he was the victim of another bite and is undergoing treatment after the unfortunate incident.

At the end of November the Irish Independent columnist was bitten following a training run on the Gold Coast in Australia, blaming the 'crazy Ozzie wildlife' for the four days he was forced off his bike.

Roche was hospitalised after the first bite also and lamented his poor luck in a humorous fashion.

"Crazy story... Back in hospital for the next 3 days because of spider bite...A different one," he posted from his Twitter account.

"Really considering going for casting of spider 6 ... Have not been climbing up the walls yet... #noluck #incredible"
