Question - Knee Injury (pop with bending knee)

hi all, while going down into a bent knee position similar to a 'praying position' i felt a pop.I had immediate swelling below the knee and to the outside of the knee, the pain runs down the outside of my knee and just below the kneecap, with the immediate swelling I am not sure what i have done but presume I have torn something.

While this was done while 'only' bending, I have done many years of weight training in the past, I still do circuits and my job is very physical.

Thank you for your time and I hope someone can shed some light for me as the pain is pretty bad when bending the knee but ok while the knee is straight.
