The Cork native, who melted the hearts of the nation on The Late Late Toy Show last year, does not require surgery but is said to be “very sore”.
Sharing the news on Adam’s Instagram account, his family wrote: “Hey everyone, So a little personal post – as you all know Adam has brittle bones and sadly he suffered a femur fracture this weekend.”
