Eddie Hall Reveals The Worst Injury He Has Ever Suffered

Eddie Hall is known for being one of the strongest and hardest athletes about, but his long career hasn't always been plain-sailing.

The 33-year-old is currently training for his first-ever boxing match, taking on arch-nemesis Hafþór 'Thor' Björnsson, which was sadly delayed recently after he tore his bicep.

But while most would wince at the mere thought of actually ripping a muscle, the Beast tells LADbible that he's done worse in the past.

He says: "I think the worst injury I've ever had was actually a month after I won the world's strongest (2017) when I was in the gym.

"I think it's that good old saying of 'when your eye's off the ball, you make mistakes'. I was squatting and I must have, like, I think I failed a rep.

"And instead of walking away, I went back to finish it and my right hip popped out of its socket, which dislocated my hip.

"And obviously that destroys the socket, it just pulls all the ligaments and tendons out and destroys everything.

"And yeah, that took me about a year to learn to walk and get back to where I was."

Fortunately, Eddie was able to make a fairly quick recovery and came back just a few months later to retain his title as Britain's Strongest Man.

Speaking at the time, he said he was 'lucky' to make it back.

He told the Sheffield Star: "To pull it off, I wouldn't say comfortably, is a miracle - because two months ago I couldn't even deadlift 200kg.

"If anyone has dislocated their hip they would know what I have been through. I was in a wheelchair for a week.

"The recovery was horrendous. So I am very lucky to be standing, yet alone winning Britain's Strongest Man."

But Eddie isn't planning on letting his latest injury setback push him off course from his ultimate goal, which is to rip Thor's head off.

And he doesn't think it's going to be a problem.

He tells us: "I'm prepared for all angles, ya know.

"I'm prepared to knock him out in round one but I'm also prepared to go the full six rounds if I have to.

"So I've got everything covered. My preference is I want to hurt him a little bit."
