A BRITISH golfer has been fitted with the first ever Bluetooth-controlled bionic leg which even offers a ‘golf mode.’golf spain

John Simpson, 63, who has managed Spanish golfers and sports celebrities such as Lord Coe and Sir Nick Faldo contracted polio at a young age and struggled to walk naturally.

The Bluetooth-operated lower limb bionic exoskeleton, which is charged up overnight, is said to have revolutionised his life and now means he can walk downstairs.

The high-tech brace is stronger than steel and offers different settings that adapt for activities such as cycling, golf and skating.

Mr Simpson is the founder of On Course Foundation, a charity that supports the recovery of injured servicemen and women through golf.
