Ireland soccer star James McCarthy has assured fans he's on the road to recovery after successful surgery on his horrific leg break.

The Everton midfielder suffered compound fractures to his tibia and fibia during last Saturday's Premier League clash against West Brom.

The opponent who tackled him, Salomon Rondon, was left in tears on the pitch after seeing the extent of the sickening injury, which was completely accidental.

McCarthy (27), whose family come from Donegal, will miss the rest of the season but has posted a social media photo of himself in good spirits in hospital.

He wrote on Instagram: "Just a quick message to say that my operation went well, thanks to all the staff involved! And a big thanks to all my family, friends and Olivia. Also cheers for all the messages, I appreciate it."

Everton and Ireland team-mate Séamus Coleman, who is close to returning to action after breaking his leg last March, says his close friend's injury was heartbreaking to see but predicted McCarthy would bounce back.
