Hall, who has been crowned UK’s Strongest Man six times, has been known to lift cars, pull planes with his bare hands and throw beer barrels.

But the 31-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 Hafthor Bjornsson and defending champion Brian Shaw.

And he remains to be the only person ever to deadlift half a tonne (500kg).

The Newcastle-born muscleman, also known as The Beast, has revealed the gruelling diet he sticks 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.

The 31-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.”
