The sporting world has rallied to send messages of support to Tiger Woods after the golf legend was involved in a horrendous car crash on Tuesday. The 45-year-old has been undergoing surgery on his legs and ankles at a Los Angeles hospital after first responders who attended the scene said Woods was unable to walk after the accident.

World number one Justin Thomas tweeted: “Sick to my stomach right now. Praying for @tigerwoods and hoping for an amazing recovery. Thinking about his entire family and team, as all of us are sending our best wishes. We know TW is a fighter. Get well soon.”

PGA Tour champion Phil Mickleson wrote: “We are all pulling for you, Tiger. We are so sorry that you and your family are going through this tough time. Everyone hopes and prays for your full and speedy recovery.”

Ian Poulter added: “Thoughts are with @tigerwoods and others involved, wishing a speedy recovery and I hope the injuries are not bad.” Justin Rose said: “Just seen the awful news. We know how tough you are, we've seen it a hundred times. Hoping and praying you're ok my friend.”

“Heartbroken and shocked to hear about @TigerWoods accident today. My thoughts and prayers are with him for a full recovery,” said fellow golfer Bryson DeChambeau. 

Tottenham star Gareth Bale, known for being a huge golf fan, tweeted: “Sending my thoughts and prayers to @tigerwoods. Get well soon champ.”

Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, who has three gold medals and dated Woods from 2013 until 2015, wrote: “Praying for TW right now.” 

On Wednesday, MailOnline reported Woods was ‘awake, responsive and recovering in his hospital room’. Chief medical officer Anish Mahajan said Woods had suffered fractures of his tibia and fibula, with his foot and ankle ‘stabilised with a combination of screws and pins’.

Woods is widely accepted as one of the greatest sports people of all-time, winning 82 official PGA Tour events and 15 majors, and he remains the only player to win all four professional major championships in a row.

His 2019 Masters title was regarded as one of the greatest sporting comeback achievements of all time, 11 years on from his last previous major victory at the 2008 US Open.
