Mark Zuckerberg announced that he underwent surgery following a knee injury he sustained while training in mixed martial arts, APA reports citing CBSNews.

The CEO of Facebook and Instagram parent company Meta posted a series of pictures of himself from his hospital bed on Friday, with one of his knees in a brace. He said that the surgery was needed after tearing his ACL while sparring.

"Grateful for the doctors and team taking care of me," Zuckerberg said in the post. "I was training for a competitive MMA fight early next year, but now that's delayed a bit. Still looking forward to doing it after I recover."
