Saints star Ben Foden has been forced to have emergency dental surgery after he lost a tooth during a training session in Northampton.

The England player, who has been out of action since January due to a knee injury, was playing a game of touch rugby today (Wednesday) when he suffered the injury.

Mr Foden, who had to cancel an interview with the BBC, joked about the incident on Twitter using the hashtag #toothless.
