Tony Hawk breaks his leg

Sharing a photo of his X-ray and one of himself in hospital, he wrote on Instagram: "Yesterday sucked. I broke my elbow 20 years ago and managed to make a full comeback

Tony said that this recovery for a broken femur will be much harder because of its severity (and my age). But I’m up for the challenge.

There is a strange irony that this happened on the eve of HBO releasing a trailer for “Until The Wheels Fall Off,” Sam Jones’ documentary about my life career, 

The answer is complicated, but ultimately it’s because I have found my sense of purpose and shaped my identity through skating, and it nourishes my mental health immensely.

e said many times that I won’t stop skating until I am physically unable. A broken leg - with plenty of hardware - will probably be the biggest test of that creed.(sic)"

But Tony has vowed he will "be back", though he knows he may not be as fit as before.

He added: "I’ll be back… maybe not at full capacity but I resigned to that notion years ago as I approached “mid-life.” 

Tony retired from professional skateboarding in 2003 but is still passionate about the pursuit 

Tony regularly shares videos of his skills and tricks on his Instagram account.
