World champion slalom skier Tessa Worley has been successfully operated on in the French city of Lyon after rupturing a ligament in her knee.

Originally pitted to represent France in February’s Winter Olympics in Sochi, Worley will now be forced to rest for the next six months, and is advised against competing for at least eight months.

But, the Franco-Australian says she has accepted her fate, vowing to set new objectives to focus on, starting with a successful recovery.
