England fast bowler Stuart Broad was Monday cleared of a broken right foot and is set to bat in the ongoing third Ashes Test, officials said.
There were fears Broad's Ashes series could be over after he was struck a stinging blow on by Australian paceman Mitchell Johnson on Sunday, the third day of the match in Perth.
Initial X-rays were inconclusive, but further scans cleared him of serious injury, although he will be unable to bowl for the remainder of the Test.
"Scans revealed no evidence of a fracture," the England and Wales Cricket Board announced on Twitter.
