A woman footballer has created a buzz after she dislocated her knee, set it back and continued to play. The incident happened during a match between St Mirren and ICT in the Scottish Women’s Championship Cup.
A clip from the match was shared on social media, which shows Jane O’Toole, the captain of a Scottish football team, falling down on the ground, which resulted in a dislocated knee. The clip shows that she fell after a tackle from an opponent player.
However, O’Toole did not let the injury affect her game and slapped the dislocated knee back into place and continued playing as if it was not a big deal.
Sharing the clip on Twitter, St Mirren WFC appreciated their captain, writing O’Toole was made of tough stuff. They went on to add, “Just look at how she dealt with dislocating her knee during our recent game at Inverness.... you can't put a good woman down - she got back up and played the full 90 minutes”.
