Sir Rod Stewart is set to have surgery for a second time in a bid to fix his ankle. The Maggie May singer revealed that he has a “crooked” ankle which required treatment after the rock legend struggled to walk.

The news comes just months after Rod went under the knife for knee replacement surgery back in January.

The singer admitted he has been “suffering” as he blamed it on playing football for most of his life.

The musical legend was due to hit the stage for a gruelling tour schedule this year but the impact of the coronavirus pandemic has placed his plans on hold.

Speaking in a new interview, Rod admitted he is optimistic about his recovery from surgery and added he’ll be able to “run” in no time.

Referencing his knee surgery, the singer explained: “First of all, it was my knee as I played football all my life.

“I am suffering for it now. My knee got fixed with a replacement and then the ankle did not know what was going on.”

Rod had been pictured with crutches earlier this year, following his knee surgery.

He continued to the Mirror: “[My leg] was crooked. So I have had to have an ankle fusion.

“So when this is all done I should have a nice straight leg and I should be able to run.”

Rod added: “My leg has been caused by playing on awful pitches in Los Angeles. They are bone dry.”
