“Everything has accelerated in the last 48 hours.

I left the operation, everything went well, ”reassured Yoann Huget, Monday at the end of the day on his Instagram account.

On Saturday, the Stade Toulousain winger injured his Achilles tendon.

A rupture confirmed Monday and an operation in the wake in a specialized clinic in Toulouse.

But this injury he feared for a long time, above all put an early halt to his career as a professional rugby player. The native of Pamiers, in Ariège, who has worn the Rouge & Noir jersey more than 170 times, announced during the fall that he would hang up his crampons at the end of this Top 14 season. I once said that my body was on a tight rope and now it spoke before me, before my season and my career were over. No miracles or surprises, life is like that and you have to accept it. Now it's time for a new life, ”he said, philosophically.

The very young retiree wanted to thank all the people who had supported him since this weekend, and what was his last match on the lawn of Ernest-Wallon.

"We meet very quickly, around new challenges," he concluded in his message recorded from the clinic where he had the operation.
