At the time he had to pull out of the match and told fans: ‘Gutted! For the first time ever I’m having to pull out of @socceraid due to injury.
‘Tore my lateral meniscus and it’s not something that can be sorted with the magic sponge. Good luck to both teams today and if you’ve got tickets you’re in for a great day for a great cause.’
Now the Take Me Out presenter has revealed he is still suffering and is unable to ‘generate enough power’ in his leg meaning he’ll have to go for surgery in the new year.

‘Technique out the window just blast away the stress on a nice heavy bag and hit it hard. Works wonders for me.
‘Slowly starting on the road back. My knee is still goosed so I can’t generate enough power but soon has I have my op in the NY I’ll be back at it!!!
‘All that aside I’m still here doing it!
PS If you think you’re hard AF, always remember, the bag doesn’t hit back! I think that’s what Bruce Lee said? #monday #stressrelief #heavybag #blast#getitdone #mentalhealth #kisskissbangbang#boxingworkout #feelbetternow #pressurevalve.’

The menisci — the medial meniscus and lateral meniscus – are crescent-shaped bands of thick, rubbery cartilage attached to the shinbone (tibia).
‘They act as shock absorbers and stabilize the knee. The medial meniscus is on the inner side of the knee joint. The lateral meniscus is on the outside of the knee.
Seeing Paddy get rid of his frustrations brought a whole load of comments from his followers including Paddy’s wife Christine who said: ‘Lovely moves on the ball bag.’
Paddy replied: ‘Behave!’
His Top Gear co-presenter Chris Harris also joked: ‘Are you imagining that’s my head? I hope so.’
Paddy replied: ‘And the rest of you.’
‘I think my kids will probably be at home with me forever’: Paddy recently detailed fears of people taking advantage of his autistic children (pictured last month)
It comes after Paddy opened up about fears surrounding his three children with autism, who he believes will probably stay at home with him ‘forever.’
The TV star shares twins Leo and Penelope, eight, and five-year-old Felicity with his Christine, who recently revealed her own autism diagnosis.
During a candid chat with The Sunday Times, the doting father even admitted to worrying about what happens to his trio once he and Christine pass on.
He said: ‘I think my kids will probably be at home with me for ever. It’s great now. I’m here and Christine’s here.
‘But eventually there comes a point when we’re not here anymore and I worry about people taking advantage of them. We’re just putting everything in place for them and trying to get them as independent as they can be.’

Reflecting on the twins’ early days, Paddy, who has recently penned an autobiography called My Lifey, said he and Christine had ‘nothing to gauge against anything’, as their friends did not have children of a similar age.
Paddy also revealed how his wife-of-ten-years wouldn’t often let people in the house, with Leo and Penelope growing anxious about new experiences, as well as showing obsessive behaviours.
The couple didn’t even disclose their situation to close family members.
They recently embarked on an investigative BBC documentary, Our Family and Autism, in order to learn more about the disorder.
It came to light during production that the former Real Housewives Of Cheshire star was autistic herself, which caused her to ‘put to bed’ any of her parental worries.

The parents admitted they blamed themselves after their three children were all diagnosed with autism.
She admitted the pair had been ‘constantly asking themselves’ whether they had done something wrong, whether it be a vaccine given to their little ones as a baby or a lack of social interaction in their early developmental years.
She told The Telegraph: ‘So when they weren’t speaking, socialising and weren’t eating food, I instantly blamed myself.
‘But Simon [Baron-Cohen, professor at Cambridge University] has done all these studies over the years and it was clear it was genetics.
‘Now I know there’s nothing we could have done differently. Our children were born autistic and so was I.’
Paddy and Christine McGuinness: Our Family and Autism airs on Wednesday December 1 at 9pm on BBC One.
What is autism?
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can cause a wide range of symptoms, which are often grouped into two main categories.
Firstly, problems with social interaction and communication.
This includes difficulty understanding and being aware of other people’s emotions and feelings and/or problems taking part in, or starting, conversations.
Patterns of thought are another key area, namely restricted and repetitive patterns of thought or physical movement, such as hand tapping or twisting, and becoming upset if these set routines are disrupted.
It’s estimated about 1 in every 100 people in the UK has ASD. More boys are diagnosed with it than girls.
There is no cure for ASD, but a range of educational and behavioural support programmes can help people with the condition.
