"It's a bit scary how the world is," he told reporters. "It's going a bit crazy. What's happening in Syria... hopefully the president of the United States, the presidents of Russia and China, can intervene and find a solution, because if not we don't know where we'll end up. We have to keep living without fear, but these things can happen. 

"I hope Marc has a fantastic recovery. In terms of what happened, it was scary and and it was serious, but he lived to tell the tale. 

"But we're in a world where we don't know where we'll end up, that's the truth. I don't know where we're heading."
