The singer's joints play up
The Irish singer, 20, reckons he’ll have to retire from pop when he’s a bit older because his legs will become too sore during long nights on stage.
‘[Mick] Jagger does it but I don’t think at the moment I’d be able to,’ Niall tells The Sun.
‘I’ve got dodgy knees.’
Niall had an operation for torn ligaments last year after dislocating one of his joints playing football and he revealed in April that it’s been playing up during the boys’ Take Me Home tour.
Luckily for Directioners, Niall has no plans to give up his music career just yet and is loving being on the road with his band mates.
The lads are currently in Australia on the final leg of their gruelling 8-month schedule.
‘Ah Melbourne dearest! I love you soo much! Thanks for another great night in Melbs! I call it that coz I live here ;),’ Tweeted Niall yesterday.
