Daniel O’Reilly, who goes by the name, Dapper Laughs, had revealed his broken leg to his social media followers earlier in the week, with the 37-year-old sharing a photo of himself in a wheelchair alongside his two daughters.

Many of his fans had been asking how O'Reilly broke his leg, and now, he has revealed that it was caused by an incident with a golf buggy. 

Watch the video that was shared to his social media below:

Although it is unclear as to why the 37-year-old was trying to jump the bunker, he did caption the video with: "For everyone asking how I broke my leg, it was of course, by being a complete legend. I finally got my golf handicap."

It is believed that O'Reilly has taken up the game only recently and has appeared on a few golfing related YouTube videos. In one video, he stated that "he took up golf as a replacement for booze."
