MELBOURNE, Australia - Red Bull F1 driver Mark Webber has had what he hopes will be the last surgery to repair a leg damaged four years earlier in a mountain-biking crash.

The now 36-year-old broke his lower right leg in the mountain-biking crash during an outdoor adventure challenge in Tasmania just before the 2009 F1 season opened.

‘LEG ALL DONE’

The latest surgery was done a few days after racing in the 2012 Tasmanian challenge.

He announced on Twitter: "Hospital trip planned a while back. I needed further surgery from previous injury. All good and on the mend."

Posting a photo of his hospital breakfast, the Red Bull driver added: "Hospital brekkie in bed. Leg finally all done."
