Rozanna Purcell has given an update on her broken leg after a hospital check-up.

The former Miss Universe Ireland model suffered an accident on Tuesday while she was playing tennis and revealed that she had broken her fibula.

The 30-year-old also thought that she may have broken her foot too but received the good news that the fracture had only impacted her leg.

Taking to Instagram yesterday, fitness fanatic Roz gave her followers an update on her condition following a check-up at the hospital and joked that the doctors used reverse psychology on her to soften the blow.

“So, I’m just back from the hospital. Everyone in there was great. It was gas, they really reverse psychology’ed me,” she explained on her Instagram Stories.

“They were like, ‘We suspect that you’ve broken your foot and you’re going to have to be sent for surgery’ and I was like, ‘What?’

“And then it was like, ‘Your foot isn’t broken, you don’t need surgery’ and I was like ‘Great, I’ve just broken my fibula. Awesome, thanks guys!’

She told her fans that her fracture is an extremely “unusual” one but hopes that it will heal quickly.

“The good thing is it’s a really isolated fracture,” she said.

“For where it is, it’s unusual that it’s isolated because there’s usually ligament damage or joint damage either below it or above it but there’s not. They said it was a really random fall to the side very fast.”

Roz also posted a photo modelling her cast and said that breaking a bone had always been a big fear of hers as she takes a break from her normally active lifestyle.

She captioned the post: “Just popping on the grid for some sympathy. I honestly have always said breaking a lower body bone is such a fear of mine as I rely on hiking & movement for my head but here we are.”
