Golf legend Tiger Woods is “awake and responsive” following surgery on serious leg injuries suffered in a car crash in Los Angeles, California, USA yesterday.
The 15-time golf major champion, 45, had to be “extricated from the wreck” by firefighters and paramedics.
The American suffered “open fractures affecting the tibia and fibula bones” in his lower right leg “stabilised by inserting a rod into the tibia”.
Injuries to his foot and ankle have been stabilised with screws and pins.
