Gaz doesnt have the strongest leg in the world (Picture: Getty Images)

Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes has had to postpone dates on his solo tour after his 15-year-old daughter channelled a touch of Chuck Norris, roundhouse kicked her father and broke his leg.

While his tour is on the fritz at the minute, her martial arts career is in full swing as she took down the man who has the album Worlds Strongest Man.

Isnt it ironic, dont you think?

Gaz took to Twitter earlier this week to share the bad, yet mildly impressive on account of his daughters strength, news.

Ive only gone & broken my leg! Larking around with the kids I got “Bruce Leed” by my 15 year old, and lets just say she connected too well, he wrote on Monday.

Im going in for surgery today @OUHospitals Oxford, where everyone has been completely amazing. A massive thank you to everyone here at the JR & to our wonderful #NHS. Ill be back soon xx

He shared an impressive x-ray of the fracture, which seemed to be a nice clean break at the joint – now held together with a bunch of screws.
