Jousting tournament – the answer

Today, I will give the answer to a puzzle I posted a long time ago. Firstly, here is the puzzle again:

During a jousting tournament, a father and his son both compete against each other. The father is hit by a lance and dies on the spot. The son is also hit, but survives and is carried into a tent. The doctor in the tent leans over him and says “It’s my son!”.

How can this be correct?

The answer is below

Quite simply, the doctor is his mother.
