Alpine skiing: Alexis Pinturault successfully operated after his heavy fall in Wengen

French skier Alexis Pinturault underwent surgery on his left knee on Tuesday after his fall during the Wengen super-G in mid-January and said the operation went “well”. “Everything went well,” he wrote on his Instagram account, posting a story where he can be seen smiling in a hospital bed. “Now we are moving forward,” he added.

Combined world champion last winter, Pinturault, 32, ruptured the anterior cruciate ligaments in his left knee after a bad landing on a jump during the super-G in Wengen in Switzerland in mid-January.

Last week, he indicated during a press briefing that stopping his career had “crossed his mind” but that “the desire to come back” had taken over. Pinturault, who has the best active record on the men's circuit with 34 World Cup successes, had started this season a shift towards speed for the end of his career, giving up slalom to discover downhill. Just a father, he achieved his first Top 10 in downhill in Wengen (9th) before falling the next day, synonymous with the end of the season.
