The 21-year-old was airlifted to the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro by coastguard helicopter.

It happened on Sunday, about 110 miles west of the Isles of Scilly, coastguards said.

It is not known how badly he was injured or what type of shark it was.

Last year a probe was launched after a dolphin was washed up on a beach with a giant “shark bite” taken out of its stomach.

The creature was discovered by a dog walker on Polly Joke beach near Newquay, Cornwall.

The gruesome metre-long wound left its ribs clearly visible.
