Adam King’s family have thanked the staff at Cork University Hospital (CUH) and asked people to keep the six-year-old in their thoughts after he suffered a bone fracture over the weekend.
In a post on Twitter, Adam’s father, David King said that the Late Late Toy Show star suffered a femur fracture in recent days.
Adam has brittle bones but thankfully, he did not require surgery following the fracture.
Mr King said that his son is now recovering at home but remains "very sore".
His father thanked the staff at CUH and asked the public to keep the six-year-old in their thoughts.
“So a little personal post- as you all know Adam has brittle bones and sadly he suffered a femur fracture this weekend,” he said.
“As always, our family are beyond grateful for the professionalism, care and genuine love shown to Adam by everyone in our hospitals.”
The Cork native first stole the hearts of the nation with his appearance on the Late Late Toy Show.
Since then, Adam has been spreading the love across Ireland and the rest of the world through his Virtual Hugs.
