Barack Obama is known to be a golf fanatic and played with Tiger Woods in 2003. Together with a series of other celebrities he prayed for the healing of Tiger.
The bad news came from Hollywood this morning. Golf legend Tiger Woods had a single accident in Los Angeles, United States on Tuesday (23/2) local time.
Tiger was immediately rushed to the hospital for further treatment. A number of Hollywood celebrities also sympathized with the tragedy that befell Tiger. Even former US President Barack Obama did not miss his wish for Tiger's recovery.
It is known, Barack is indeed a golf fanatic and played with the legend in 2003 while on a short vacation to West Palm Beach, FL. According to him, Tiger is a tough man so he will be able to get through all of this.
I pray for @TigerWoods and his family tonight. Get well soon, "the former president said in a tweet on his Twitter account." If we've learned anything over the years, it's to never consider Tiger out.
Besides Barack, Serena Williams also sent support to Tiger. According to him, Tiger is like a big brother to him.
"I love you, Brother ... We can definitely get through all this," he said.
Singer Janet Jackson also sent a prayer to Tiger. He and the golfer worked together in May 2009 at a Tiger Jam commemoration to help Tiger's TGR Foundation. The foundation helps provide resources for underprivileged school children.
Not quite there, support for Tiger also came from Jada Pinkett Smith. He messaged Tiger and his fans on Twitter just moments after the news of the accident was published. Previously, he had spent time playing golf with the legend.
"I pray for Tiger Woods who had an accident this morning," wrote Jada, who had previously uploaded his photo with Tiger. "Just yesterday I met him."
