Hollywood actress Jane Fonda was clearly in sentimental mood before an operation to replace her knee, as she posted an entry on her blog paying tribute to it.
In the entry, entitled "So long old knee", the actress – famed for her Eighties fitness videos – said she would miss her "strong and faithful knee", and revealed that her former husband, French film director Roger Vadim, liked to kiss them both.
"For years I ran on it and skied. I am remembering the girlhood scabs from falls off my bike. The splinters and bruises," wrote the 71-year-old, who underwent a hip replacement in 2005.
