According to Tom Daley, his husband, Dustin Lance Black, is in surgery after an accident.

Dustin Lance Black is in hospital according to his husband, Tom Daley, after the Oscar-winning writer injured his knee dancing at a wedding. The writer apparently snapped his anterior cruciate ligament whilst attempting “dad dancing”.

The news was shared on Instagram by the diving Olympian, who published an intimate snap of the two kissing at a wedding the pair were attending. Of the picture, the diver wrote, “This was taken at the wedding we attended, where Lance snapped his ACL. He’s currently in surgery getting it fixed! Sending love and positive vibes his way”.

According to Healthline.com,  “An anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear is an injury to the ligament in your knee that keeps your shinbone from sliding forward. The ACL stabilizes your knee, so tearing it either partially or completely can cause pain and swelling. It’s a common injury among athletes”.

Or in this case, Dads who think they can dance.

Apparently, he snapped it while he was “dad dancing”.

Dustin wrote, on his own profile, “A few weeks back I snapped my ACL dad dancing. Surgery tomorrow. Scary! Send good vibes for a quick recovery”.
