Chinese hurdler Liu Xiang will go under the knife in London after a serious Achilles tendon tear put him out of the London Olympics, an official said.
The former 110m hurdles gold medallist will return to China soon after the operation, he said.
“He will have an operation today,” Chinese Olympic committee spokesman Zhang Haifeng told AFP.
