Skateboarding legend loses tooth in stunt

Skateboarding legend Tony Hawk was tweeting for a dentist yesterday following a stunt that went wrong and cost him his front tooth.

Tony, 43 and considered to be one of the greatest skateboarders of all time, had his accident at a skate park in Florida, USA.

On the micro-blooging site Twitter, he wrote: ‘Oops, doubles with Staab went wrong at Kona. Anyone know a good dentist in Savannah? Not a joke.’

The post included photographic evidence.

Seemingly, he found a dentist, as a day later, he posted another photograph of himself without his front tooth alongside the caption ‘My new look.’
