Tiger Woods is undergoing surgery after a car accident, and Gary Lineker has sent him a note.
Tiger Woods was taken to the hospital on Tuesday after a catastrophic automobile accident.
Tiger Woods was involved in a catastrophic vehicle accident in Los Angeles, and Gary Lineker has conveyed his condolences to the renowned golfer. The 45-year-old is claimed to be recovering from multiple leg injuries and is having surgery.
Woods was involved in a “single vehicle roll-over traffic collision” and had to be “extricated from the car” by paramedics and firefighters, according to the LA County Sheriff’s Department’s Twitter post.
Lineker has already sent a message of goodwill to Woods, claiming that he is thinking about him as medics work on his major leg injuries.
On Twitter, the Match of the Day host remarked, “Thoughts are with @TigerWoods.”
“I’m hoping it’s not as bad as it appears.”
The accident occurred around 7:00 a.m. in Los Angeles, and Woods’ vehicle rolled several times before coming to a halt on its side.
The automobile, a Genesis GV80 that he was loaned for the duration of his stay in Los Angeles, where he hosted the PGA Genesis Invitational tournament, is alleged to be badly damaged.
Over the weekend, Woods hosted the tournament before staying behind to film on GolfTV with a number of other celebrities, including actress Jada Pinkett Smith and former NBA player Dwayne Wade.
Just hours before the accident, Pinkett Smith posted a series of images with the five-time Masters champion to Instagram with the caption: “Guess who I had the most incredible golf day with yesterdayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy Yes! @tigerwoods is incredible!!!!
“Dreams do come true,” says the narrator. I can’t wait for you to see my Tiger Woods golf trip. “Be on the lookout!”
Woods was previously arrested four years ago near his Florida home on accusations of driving under the influence.
The cause of Tuesday’s crash has yet to be determined.
When asked about the event, fellow professional golfer Justin Thomas, with whom Woods has a solid connection, cut an emotional figure.
He fought back tears as he wished his comrade well in his recovery and expressed compassion for the star’s children, daughter Sam and son Charlie.
He told reporters, “It sucks to see one of your best friends get in an accident, and I just hope he’s okay.”
“You know, I’m simply concerned for his children. “Brinkwire Summary News,” I’m sure.”
