Sandra Sully sparks concern after appearing on Ten News with a nasty injury on show
Veteran Ten news presenter Sandra Sully has appeared on television with her hand heavily wrapped in a bandage, sparking concerns.
The star journalist read the 5pm headlines for 10 News First on Monday with two of the fingers on her left hand concealed under a medical wrapping.
Network 10 confirmed Sully, one of the most recognisable faces on Australian television, had undergone surgery after being injured the week prior.

‘Sandra Sully suffered a small injury last week that required minor surgery on her finger,’ a spokesperson said.
‘She is doing well and is now on the mend.’
Sandra has been part of the Ten News team since 1990 and was the first Australian journalist to break the news of the September 11 terrorist attacks, the 22nd anniversary of which was observed today.
Earlier this year, Sandra recalled one of her most embarrassing live TV moments.
The veteran newsreader revealed on the I’ve Got News For You podcast that she once struggled to finish a bulletin about a kangaroo ‘playing with his testicles’.
[At the end of my broadcast], I would throw to sport and they had a play of the day,’ the Channel 10 presenter explained.
‘I generally got a chance to look at it and one time I was busy and they didn’t put it in the rundown and they waited till I was on air. I didn’t even get a chance to check the pictures.’
‘[The story] was a golf tournament and there was a mob of kangaroos on the course. Play had to be halted because this kangaroo decided to play with his testicles.’
Sandra explained she wasn’t expecting it and couldn’t finish her news bulletin.
‘It was international coverage and the team put music to it. I wasn’t expecting it and I could barely finish the bulletin. It was about 11.30pm,’ she added.
