Tiger Woods is awake and responsive in hospital after undergoing a long surgery following his serious car crash on Tuesday.
One of sport’s most iconic figures of all time, Woods was involved in a single-vehicle car accident in Los Angeles and was rushed to hospital.
He suffered multiple injuries to his legs, and required immediate surgery. 
On Wednesday morning (SA time), a statement was released on the official Tiger Woods social media channels providing more detail on his condition. 
Doctor Anish Mahajan, MD and interim CEO at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Centre, confirmed that Woods underwent a “long” surgery to his right leg and ankle. 
“Comminuted open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula bones were stabilised by inserting a rod into the tibia,” he said.
“Additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle were stabilised with a combination of screws and pins.”
The seriousness of the injuries has left question marks hovering over Woods’ future in the sport.
