GMB’s Ben Shephard tears ACL, fractures leg, cuts nerves in horror injury – .


Good Morning Britain host Ben Shephard revealed on Thursday’s show that he wears a leg brace after suffering a horrific injury while playing sports.
Ben admitted he ruptured his ACL, tore his meniscus and fractured his leg during a football game, but did not realize the extent of the injury and therefore continued to play .

He explained that he cut his nerves, which is why he couldn’t feel the full extent of the damage.

Opening the show, her co-host Susanna Reid told her, “I wish I had taken a picture in my dressing room this morning, because Ben came in with a good kick in the leg. “

“Quite the outfit, yeah,” Ben said.

“Did you have some kind of restraint?” Suzanne said.

“A hug,” confirmed Ben.

“I have a few weeks left, you might remember I played in the Arthur Dunn Veterans Cup final, my old boys’ team.

“We won the Cup final, but I started with two stages and ended with one.

“Without realizing it, I ruptured my ACL, tore the meniscus and also fractured part of my leg. “

Dr Hilary Jones remarked: “It’s a bad wound, it’s a bad wound. “

“Have you prescribed the splint?” Suzanne asked.

“No, but I approved it! It’s not a great look, let’s be honest, ”laughed Dr Hilary.

Ben chuckled, “It sounds a bit Robocop-esque, oddly enough, I didn’t realize I had done it so badly, I kept playing for 25 minutes before I thought ‘This is a little unstable, maybe I should stop ‘.

“It turned out that I had cut all the nerves, so I didn’t feel any pain and kept playing. “

Dr Hilary interjected, “Basically it’s the ligament that holds the lower leg on the upper leg, so it’s very dramatic!”

Ben replied, “It was a bit banging!” What is sad is that it did not affect my level of football! “
