After tearing a ligament in December, the 20-year-old’s surgery ended up being more serious than originally expected.

On Friday he explained to his nearly 17 million Twitter followers, “Hey guys I know most of you have seen those pics today!  Yes I’ve had major knee surgery, a much larger surgery than first anticipated. But I would like to tell you, it was a complete success! Considering the scale of it!” 

He finished off by telling his fans “so all I ask of you guys is that you would respect my privacy as I try to recover and get for the where we are tour!”

Niall has a couple of months to heal up before he and the rest of 1D head to South America at the end of April to kick off their 2014 stadium world tour.
