Wales hero Alex Cuthbert will be out of action for up to six weeks, after he tore his hamstring during his match-winning performance against England on Saturday.

The 22-year-old Blues winger scored two tries, as Wales won the game, and snatched the Six Nations title.

Confirmation that he was injured during the game has led The Daily Mail to write the headline: 'Cuthbert beat England on one leg!'

The paper says he was nearly taken off injured at half-time and was surprised he could run to score both second-half tries.
