Tiger Woods has released a statement via his Twitter page to say he is 'awake', 'responsive' and 'recovering' following his worrying car accident in Los Angeles yesterday.
Woods has undergone surgery on his lower right leg and right ankle following the single-car collision.
He was the sole occupant of the SUV which he was driving.
The 15-time major champion has suffered fractures affecting the upper portions of the tibia and fibula bones.
The injuries are certain to rule Woods out of competitive golf for the foreseeable future.
