Get well soon, Niall

Our favourite Directioner (yes, we’re biased) is recovering from major knee surgery it would seem.

Taking to Twitter to write to his 16.7million followers, Niall confirmed that pictures of him on crutches that appeared online this morning were real, while asking for some privacy as he recovers.

In a series of three tweets Niall wrote; “Yes I’ve had major knee surgery, a much larger surgery than first anticipated … But I would like to tell u it was a complete success! Considering the scale of it! So all I ask of you guys is that you would respect my privacy as I try to recover and get for the where we are tour”.

Get well soon Niall and enjoy the peace and quiet before the tour!
