Lauer To Undergo Surgery After Bike Accident

| Filed under: TV News

If you're a celebrity, you may want to lay off your bicycle - at least for a day or two!

Lance Armstrong has suffered a broken collarbone after he fell from his bike in Spain on Monday.

And, as we mentioned earlier, Today show co-host Matt Lauer flipped over his bike's handlebars, injuring himself after a deer jumped in front of him.

Unfortunately for Lauer, it seems his injuries were worse than expected.

Matt will require surgery. Turns out he separated his shoulder!

According to the show's publicist, Lauer is "doing well."

Here's to a speedy recovery - and we're glad (in the grand scheme of things) it was just a separated shoulder!

    Aww, hope he has a speedy and smooth recovery. I love Matt…but when I read that I burst out laughing. Just thinking about the sight and irony of it all. That usually happens in a car but not on a bike lol. Poor guy.

    This guy sure is ugly, and his fame is shocking because he has no talent.

    Oh sure, a deer, I told my dad that same bullshit story when I wrecked his truck right before he decked me. A lest Matt is still rolling with both his boys intact.

    Bicycle accident? Since he is going to be home with the shoulder thing anyway, he can get a few more hairs transplanted to thicken out what he had done last time.

    According to Lance's Twitter account he has to get surgery too!



  20. 20

    Love him. Heal quickly.

    I agree M3chick! Matt was a Bush loving asshole. and just how do you hit a deer riding a bike? He must have been riding in the forest for some buttsecks.



  22. 22

    this guy is one of the worst and most boring journalist to me. who cares where in the world he is. poor deer.



  23. 23

    Awesome…can't stand this JERK - huge ego, weak - things he's cutting edge - just a shallow douche

    "Just" a separated shoulder? Trust me, it is not a simple thing to recover from. I had a bankart proceedure in 2002 following a freak accident, and my shoulder is still giving me trouble. Plus I was miserable for 2 weeks following the surgery. I love Matt and I wish him a speedy recovery. At least he won't have to struggle with putting on and taking off bras like I did.



  25. 25

    yay for twitter aye perez



  26. 26

    I laugh every time I see Matt Lauer interviewing somebody because Matt sits all cross legged and faggy like a woman…..very gay and faggy way of sitting, he needs to work on that…



  27. 27

    Who the hell cares about Matt Lauer??



  28. 28

    Fuck him, he's an asshole

    He really seems to be the real deal.
