Ex-World’s Strongest Man Eddie Hall nearly BLED to death after dropping weights on his penis – The Sun

EDDIE HALL has revealed how he nearly bled to death after dropping a set of weights on his PENIS.

The former World's Strongest Man, who will fight Hafthor Bjornsson next year, had to be "stitched up" at the hospital after the horrific accident.

Hall, who has been crowned UK's Strongest Man six times, held the deadlift world record until Thor pulled 501kg last month. 

But the 32-year-old has recalled the time that disaster struck while he was training legs in the gym.

According to the Mirror, he said: "I piled a load of heavy weights on a leg-press machine and then heard a loud thud.

"It has come crushing down and the weights had landed on my penis. I nearly bled to death.

"It was bad. The worst ever. I didn't cry for help though.

"I just lifted them off, drove myself to the hospital and got stitched up. I was back training soon enough."

Hall was crowned the World's Strongest Man in 2017 after he finished ahead of Bjornsson and defending champion Brian Shaw.

The 32-year-old has now claimed the Game of Thrones star has smearing him with "lies" for years over that win.

And the pair are now preparing to settle their differences in Las Vegas after agreeing to go head-to-head in the boxing ring.

Hall has already showed off his blistering jab speed in a video he shared with his 2.2million Instagram followers.

The Newcastle-born muscleman, also known as The Beast, revealed the gruelling diet he stuck by to maintain his bulked up physique.

He added: "On average I eat 8,000 calories a day.

"A full English at first – four slices of bacon, four sausages, black pudding, eggs, fried bread, beans, the works.

"Then a second breakfast of porridge and about five portions of fruit. I snack all day on cashew nuts and beef jerky and lunch will be steak or chicken with rice, pasta, and veggies and half a family-sized cheesecake for pudding.

"Then I have a steak and rice meal then the evenings get hefty. Spaghetti bolognese or a curry and the other half of that cheesecake to polish it off."

Hall has admitted that being 6ft 3in and weighing around 28 stone can have its downsides – but he is now cutting down to prepare for the boxing bout.

The 32-year-old said: "I've broken a few sofas in my time. I plonk myself down my friends' sofas and often they split straight down the middle.

"I have a custom-made, heavy duty bed at home, but I've broken my fair share of hotels beds, too."

When the weights just ain’t enough ? #WorldsStrongestMan Big Love The Beast
