David Beckham ruptures achilles tendon

Terrible news for David Beckham who has ruptured his Achilles tendon. As we get older probably the most important (and hardest) thing is to stay injury free. Once athletes get into their mid thirties the recovery time is longer and tougher.

Sports physician Dr Tom Crisp told BBC Radio 5 live:
“It takes many weeks for the tendon itself to heal – six to eight weeks, minimum. “It is remotely possible he may be running in three months. The chances of him being fit to play for England are just non-existent. “He may be able to start training again around the time of the World Cup and he could be fit for next season but there is no chance at all he will play in South Africa.”
