MotoGP star Cal Crutchlow has shared stomach-churning footage of surgery on his broken wrist.
The British motorcycle racer suffered the injury during the first round of the 2020 season in Spain in July and still raced the next weekend in the Andalusian GP.
Now he has posted a clip from operation on his wrist – and it is not for the faint-hearted.
Crutchlow’s arm muscle can be incredibly seen moving around during the surgery.
And his followers on Instagram were quick to let him know how gruesome they found it.
“Think the wife has just gone faint,” declared one.
Another called him a “machine” as a fellow fan commented: “Ah man! Just had to throw my steak dinner in the bin!”
Another said: “That’s incredible to see. Thanks for sharing and I’m sure I’ve seen this on a Terminator movie.”
WARNING: Graphic images
Crutchlow finished an incredible 13th in Andalusia, less than a week after the major surgery.
And that is still his best result of the season after five races, as manufacturers Honda continue to struggle.
He only has seven points from the first five races, but insists he is riding at “maybe 90-95 per cent” and is adamant his motivation is still high.
He said: “If I didn’t love it, I wouldn’t still be here.
“If I didn’t love it and didn’t want to do it, I wouldn’t want to ride next year – and I do.
“I still want to be able to be fast, I still am fast. I can guarantee you now, I am still fast.
