[ENGLISH] WAYDE VAN NIEKERK SUFFERS SERIOUS KNEE INJURY IN CELEBRITY TOUCH RUGBY GAME
The 400m world record holder, reigning Olympic and world champion, Wayde van Niekerk @waydedreamer has seriously injured his knee during a celebrity touch rugby match.

The 25-year-old South African will now face six months of rehabilitation in the US, Qatar and South Africa after sustaining medial and lateral tears of the meniscus and tearing his anterior cruciate ligament playing rugby in Cape Town.

In a statement Van Niekerk, who was due to undergo surgery at the Steadman Clinic in Colorado on Tuesday, said he hoped to be back in the summer of 2018.

"This is sport and these things happen. I trust that the team I have around me, including the medical professionals, will make this process as smooth as possible," Van Niekerk said.
