Niall Horan has been open with fans about the struggle he's had with his knee. When he underwent surgery, it was a rough time, especially seeing him use those crutches. He has since bounced back, and took a major step forward in his healing process: he can finally touch the heel of his foot to his butt. That sign of flexibility is something the One Direction singer is super proud of!
Niall just had to share his progress with us and wrote in the caption of this photo, "First time I've been able to touch my [butt] with my heel since I got the operation. Sounds so dumb, but it's a big day in my head haahah!"
He is so happy to feel like his old self, and it's great to see him being strong and healthy. It's not an easy thing to recover from a major surgery, but with persistence and determination, you can make it happen, just like Niall. We're proud.
