Joe Wicks heads to hospital to change cast on his hand after energetic PE lesson – The Sun

JOE Wicks headed to hospital today to get the cast changed on his hand following his latest PE lesson for the nation.

The Body Coach, 33, revealed he had broken a bone in his hand last week but has still continued to offer free classes amid the coronavirus crisis.

Today he kept fans up to date with his progress as he had it looked over and the cast changed.

Earlier in the day, he had told fans he was struggling wearing it, admitting: "It's a right laugh showering with this every day."

Last week Joe underwent minor surgery to help his hand heal properly, telling fans at the time: "If you're wondering why I've got a black wrist support on.

"Broke a bone in my hand."

And pointing to the back of his hand just above his wrist, he added: "Having a wire put in here tomorrow."

Joe took it upon himself to become the nation's PE teacher last week, after schools across Britain were forced to close down indefinitely due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Every weekday at 9am he runs a 30 minute live class on his YouTube channel, with almost a million people tuning in each day.

Posting a grab from one of the workouts to Instagram last week, Joe reflected on a successful week and revealed he would be donating his earnings to the NHS.

He wrote: "Words can't express how happy and proud I have felt every day this week as the nation's P.E. teacher.

"I’ve been overwhelmed with the response and the support it's had from everyone.

"As a result of so many people viewing the #PEWithJoe workouts on YouTube the advertising revenue generated has been unlike anything I've seen or experienced on my channel before.

"So I've decided that as long as I’m the nations P.E. teacher, every single penny of the money generated on these videos is going to the place where we need it the most right now. All of it is going straight to the NHS, to support the real heroes right now."

He added: "Thank you for watching, joining in and sharing… I’m loving being your P.E. Teacher and now you can watch again, knowing you’re not only staying fit, you’re also helping raise money for the NHS. See you Monday at 9am".

It comes after we revealed he made over £5.5m last year – that's £15,177 a day from his Body Coach workouts online.
