Joe Wicks ‘feeling fantastic’ after operation and vows he’s ‘back in the game’
Joe Wicks has admitted he’s feeling ‘fantastic’ after having surgery on his hand and shared an update from his hospital bed. The Body Coach had been admitted to Kingston Hospital in London over a painful injury and underwent an operation to repair it after falling off a bike, but he’s now fighting fit and rearing to get back to keeping the globe healthy during coronavirus lockdown. ‘Good morning everybody, I feel fantastic,’ Joe said in a video posted on his Instagram Stories. ‘The antibiotics have well and truly kicked in. The inflammation and the swelling has gone right down.’ He then wiggled his fingers and joked he might now write some emails and play the guitar. ‘I’m back in the game so see you Monday morning for some nose-picking,’ Joe added.
Joe revealed that he will be returning to his PE session next week, with the 33-year-old previously telling his followers: ‘See you Monday for PE with Joe.’ He also explained that his wife, Rosie, will be helping him for the upcoming session, as he might not be able to showcase many exercises due to his injury, but he ‘doesn’t want to let anyone down’. ‘I’ve just asked my lovely wife Rosie to help me with #pewithjoe on Monday morning and she’s kindly agreed,’ he said, as he posted a picture of Rosie with their son, Marley, to his story.

Joe Wicks says he will be back for his PE class on Monday after undergoing hand surgery.
The 33-year-old Body Coach star whose fitness sessions on his YouTube channel have become a lockdown sensation with children has been updating fans with his progress while in hospital.
He said the surgery is over and paid tribute to the NHS.
“The wires have been taken out… it was infected,” he said in a video on Instagram Stories.
“I’m staying in tonight to have… antibiotics and a bit more paracetamol then I’ll be home tomorrow morning, back to my family.
“So see you Monday morning, PE With Joe.”
Earlier, Wicks, who is donating the money raised from his online PE lessons to the NHS, posted a video of himself “gowned up” with “the socks on” and waiting for his operation.

joe Wicks paid wife Rosie the sweetest tribute at the weekend as he revealed that she would be taking over his P.E. class on Monday while he recovers from his latest hand operation.
The fitness guru told his 3.6 million fans that while he rests, his wife, who doesn’t feel 100 per cent comfortable taking over, will be leading the session, something he will forever be grateful for.
“I’ve had to call in a supply teacher for Monday’s #pewithjoe,” he told his followers on Saturday. “It’s my beautiful wife Rosie. She’s kindly agreed to come on the live stream with me to demonstrate the moves as I really need to let my hand rest for a few days now I’ve had the wires removed.”
He added: “It’s totally out of her comfort zone so I’ve got so much love and respect for her right now. She’s always there for me when I need her the most and she knows how much it means to me that I don’t let anyone down with these daily workouts. I’ll still be leading the session and coaching you all but Rosie will be demonstrating the exercises for you. Let’s wish her good luck on her debut PE class.
The sweet tribute was written alongside a fun wedding snap of the pair taken on top of a carousel. And it seems that sharing that lovely picture from their big day brought wonderful memories back, which made Joe post three more photos in his stories.
One of them shows the couple kissing after saying their vows in their woodland ceremony. In another one, the couple are being showered with confetti as they exit their ceremony. “Always by my side in life,” Joe wrote across it.
Reflecting on the special day at the time, Joe said: “It’s true when people say your wedding day goes by in a flash. We had the best day ever with our close family and friends. The venue was perfect, we were blessed with sunshine.” The personal trainer continued: “We had fun fair rides, food trucks with our dream menu, a G&T bar & had gelato & frozen daqs for the win. The DJ was absolutely lit too. He kept the dance floor packed until 1am. Wish I could do it all over again.”
