leg injury

Katy, This is for Simon, and may seem like a rather obscure, useless question, however, the question is repeatedly asked when this picture (and others from the shoot) are circulated...What was the bandage on his leg for? Obviously there was some sort of injury, but why leave the bandage on for the photoshoot? Thanks, Laura
