He continued: 'I was trying to do as many runs as I can but the jive is one of those dances that requires 150%.
'On the Thursday I was like 'Katya, I can't do any more. I am an Olympic athlete and I can push through things that most people can't push through but my achilles is going to go if I keep going.'
However Adam made it to his last show despite the pain and he battled in the dance-off against Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin.
Following a dance off, it sadly was the end of Adam and Katya's Strictly journey as they became the sixth couple to be eliminated from the competition.

When asked by host Rylan Clark-Neal on the Judges' scores for their Jive, Adam said: 'The Judges have a role and I think they did that very fairly. I've got nothing against that and as a competitor, you've got to respect that and I have respect for that.
'But it is what it is, isn't it? I gave absolutely everything to Katya, I gave absolutely everything to myself but hopefully, we gave a good laugh to everyone at home.'
When asked about her partnership with Adam, Katya said: 'We've been so privileged to have our Olympic hero come back from the Olympics and throw himself completely out his comfort zone.
'I've just loved every single day. I'm sure everyone would be very grateful for those tight trousers [in the Samba]! You rose to the challenge and inspired everyone to believe that you can do anything if you apply yourself. Thank you for everything - I'm still not ready to go!'
It comes after Adam's mother hit out at Strictly Come Dancing, claiming the show is a 'total fix' and she doesn't buy the public vote.

One fan replied to Caroline to say that 'someone had to go' and she was doing Adam a 'disservice' by hitting out at the show.

They wrote: 'This isn't the Olympics, it's an entertainment show where people vote based on what they like. Someone had to go.
'Adam's been fantastic and achieved so much to get this far. You're doing him a great disservice by calling it a farce and knocking the remaining contestants.'
Caroline replied: 'Everyone is entitled to an opinion, I have watched this show for the first time and I have seen with my own eyes that
