Tv - Piers Morgan Suffering From Fractured Rib After Brett Lee Challenge

Tv newsman Piers Morgan is recovering from a fractured rib after former Australian cricketer Brett Lee struck him repeatedly with cricket balls.

Lee challenged Morgan to face him in the nets after the Cnn host criticised England's team performance in the Boxing Day Ashes Test in Melbourne, Australia last week (begs23Dec13).

In a video of the challenge, Morgan endured strikes to the head, ribs and wrist, while trying to hit cricket balls bowled at him by Lee, who took offence at the newsman's comments.

Confirming the injury news with a picture of his X-ray on Twitter.com on Tuesday (31Dec13), Morgan writes, "Breaking (literally!) News: Fractured rib confirmed by X-ray...thanks again @BrettLee_58".

In addition to the fractured rib, he is also nursing a cracked wrist.
