Super painful, but wow that's comparatively lightly (hand, and shoulder, and elbow...)

Metacarpals 2 & 4 to the extent of needing surgery, though that is presumably for accurate alignment and speed of recovery. Not sure how he broke 2&4 without getting 3 or 5, must have been an odd stress pattern.

British people ó I see in this article that Taoís fatherís name is Tom Geoghan. Is that a typo or does it indicate some family relationship?

And is Tao a Scots name? Couldnít find anything about that.

Geoghan is just another valid spelling. Occasionally families will Anglicise names, it's all a bit arbitrary.
