LONDON - Virgin Airlines owner Richard Branson injured his knee in a skiing accident in Switzerland, he wrote on his blog.
The tycoon ruptured a ligament on New Year’s Day after colliding with a teenager on the slopes, reports contactmusic.com.
“I was run into by a teenager while skiing on New Year’s Day and completely ruptured my ACL (anterior cruciate ligament),” Branson wrote on his blog.
“I had an operation within 24 hours and a new ACL was screwed in. Normally it takes nine months to fully recover but I’m working hard to be back on my feet as soon as possible.”
“I’m excited for the busy year ahead. I’m actually quite dangerous with my legs up (I get an idea a minute!). Luckily I’ve a notebook in one hand and a phone in the other - not so lucky for my team,” Branson added.
