Nine’s Today co-host Alison Langdon has been taken to hospital after injuring her knee while filming a segment for the show yesterday, the network says.

Langdon did not appear on the show this morning while she recovers, 9Now reports, with co-host Karl Stefanovic confirming she is doing alright, but is in a Queensland hospital.

“She hurt herself really badly,” Stefanovic said to journalist Leila McKinnon, who filled in for Langdon this morning.

“She’s in hospital this morning. She’s OK,” Stefanovic said, via 9Now. “I know you spoke to her as well,” he added.

McKinnon said she received an early morning text from Langdon.

“She messaged me this morning at 3.00 asking how I like the alarm. So, she’s still got the same great spirit,” she said.

During its morning segment today, Today aired footage from the accident, which occurred while Langdon was filming a ‘hydrofoiling’ stunt, which showed Langdon floating on her back in water while being attended to.

The accident wasn’t all cause for seriousness on-air though, with Today Extra’s Sylvia Jeffreys joking that Langdon had injured herself on purpose.

“A lot of people have done a lot of things to avoid Karl but I think this one really takes the cake,” she said.

According to Surfer Today, a hydrofoil is a long and hydrodynamically designed fin with wings.

“The beauty of it is that it mitigates the effects of the wind on the surface of the water, reducing friction and allowing you to angle at 90 degrees in less than a second,” Surfer Today reports.

“The structure, or fuselage, blends steel, aluminium, and fiberglass and lifts a surfboard outside the water even at low speeds. Foils can be used to surf, race our cruise around.”

The outlet describes hyrdrofoils as “the future of watersports”.

“They allow us to access new waves and offshore surf breaks that had never been explored before. Basically, foils redefined what we considered to be a rideable wave,” Surfer Today reports.

“Foil surfing is an exciting experience, and it may not require waves to get going. Hydrofoil surfing is somehow like controlled aquaplaning. It’s all about gliding effortlessly and smoothly above water.”

Alas, 10's Gladiators has gone as quickly as it came. Should make for a very wild garage sale, however.
