Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani had emergency surgery Sunday after his right leg gave way on the first day of his vacation on Long Island, Page Six of the New York Post reported Tuesday.

"I was a catcher from a very young age, and I have suffered with 'catcher's knee' for years," Giuliani, 73, told Page Six from the hospital. "The doctors said it would deteriorate."

Giuliani said he had quadriceps tendon surgery.

"Then, my knee gave way when I was walking on Sunday," he explained. "I tried to get up, but [my wife] Judith ordered me not to move.

"If it hadn't been for her, the injury would have been a lot worse," Giuliani added. "It was my first day of vacation, and we'd planned to play a lot of golf.

"I don't think I will be playing golf for a few weeks."

He and his wife were hosting a party at their Long Island home when Giuliani fell.

"I am already up and limping around," he told Page Six. "I'm a tough guy, so this isn't going to stop me."
