Welsh rugby player Ceri Davies suffered a truly gruesome injury last Saturday when his calf was stamped on.

Davies didn’t realise until hours after the game that something was wrong. When the swelling and bruising kept getting worse, he drove himself to A&E, where he passed out and was taken to surgery, according to Wales Online.

Davies has been in hospital since Saturday and is hoping to go home tomorrow after a second operation. He has received a huge amount of support from fans and the community.
