The 20-year-old singer managed to keep his lengthy stay in a US hospital impressively under wraps, with fans only being alerted to the Irish charmer’s poorly condition after seeing him hobbling into Heathrow Airport yesterday.
‘Hey guys I know most of you have seen those pics today! Yes I’ve had major knee surgery, a much larger surgery than first anticipated’, the One Direction singer tweeted.
Niall’s had trouble with a dodgy knee since he was a child, but thankfully, it looks like Harry Styles‘ loveable bandmate is now well and truly on the mend after jetting back to the UK to begin his recovery process.
‘But i would like to tell u, it was a complete success! Considering the scale of it! So all I ask of you guys is that you would respect my privacy as I try to recover and get for the where we are tour!’ he continued on Twitter.
And at least having Horan in his sick bed mean plenty more sexy selfies for us – the singer has been keeping himself entertained by sharing some snaps of his cherubic little face for us all to enjoy.
‘Thank god for filters huh! Be in an awful state without them hahaha,’ Niall captioned the snap.
Poor little lamb. If you’re on the hunt for a night nurse Niall, you know where we are…
