Tiger Woods is in surgery at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center after sustaining "serious injuries to both legs" in a major car crash in California, according to police.

Fire fighters freed the golfing star from his car shortly after 7am on Tuesday in Rancho Palos Verdes, near Los Angeles, after it rolled over and sustained "major damage" in the incident.

A second crash occurred after another driver had stopped to help Mr Woods, according to local officials. The wreck was minor and no one was hurt.

A slew of sporting figures, as well as former president Donald Trump, have become the first to publicly send their "prayers" and "thoughts" to Mr Woods, via social media, as he is treated in hospital.

A truck-mounted crane lifted Tiger Woods' wrecked Genesis GV80 SUV from the side of the road, as law enforcement officers inspected the scene of the crash and looked inside the interior of the car.
