Former Wallabies winger and Rugby League star Wendell Sailor has broken the arm of fellow former NRL player, Ben Ross, on live TV during the rugby league show, The Footy Show. It took place as part of the Iron Arm Challenge, an arm wrestling challenge that was set up for charity.

Beau Ryan, funny man and former player himself, was on hand to call the event, but was clearly shocked at what happened, as Ross appeared to have his elbow dislocated, or possibly ripped the bicep off the bone. It only just happened, so details are scarce at this stage

Now 40-years-old, Sailor switched from Rugby League to Union and went on to play 37 Tests for the Wallabies before making his return to the NRL in 2007.

Channel Nine's Ben Fordham wrote in a tweet that Ross's injury "looks like a busted bicep".

"Ben Ross is going to be OK, thankfully," he said. "Just a freak accident nobody could have predicted. Hope he's better ASAP.

Ross was taken to hospital immediately, and the Nine Network cut to an ad break.
