Film critic Roger Ebert has been hospitalised with a broken hip.

Ebert's wife Chaz joked that the Chicago Sun-Times writer injured himself after performing "tricky disco dance moves".

Ebert, who is still in the hospital but due to leave soon, tweeted an update to his fans.

He wrote: "Yes, fracture. But no surgery needed. Details follow."

Ebert's wife told The AP that her husband is hard at work, adding that he had requested his computer and would "probably tweet".

The 70-year-old writer has previously been treated for papillary thyroid cancer.
