Billionaire Elon Musk reported to the hospital for tests on Monday. As he says himself, he may need spinal surgery and MRI scans are necessary. The rich man boasted a little earlier about … training with weights and sumo fight.
In an unexpected twist on the MMA fight between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, we learned quite a lot about the health of the world’s richest man. The owner of Tesla, SpaceX and Twitter (now X.com) may need surgery.
Elon Musk in the hospital – covering up for the fight with Zuckerberg?
It all started with the impatience of Mark Zuckerberg. The creator of Facebook announced that he is “ready to fight even today”. Elon Musk seems to delay the event at every turn. So Zuckerberg recently dropped the date of the fight, proposing the MMA gala in Las Vegas on August 26.
Tesla’s owner has been very ambiguous lately. On Friday, he posted a video on his profile in which he proudly lifts a dumbbell weighing 20 kilograms. He also says he doesn’t have time to work out at the gym, so he does it at the office.
At the same time, the billionaire began to cover his health a bit. On Sunday, he was asked why he did not respond to Zuckerberg’s latest challenge for a long time and how fans should understand it. Musk replied that on Monday … he reports to the hospital.
Elon Musk may need back surgery
It’s about MRI tests and x-rays of the neck and back of the richest man in the world. As Elon Musk adds, he will find out this week whether he will require major back surgery.
Musk is known as a workaholic who doesn’t care much about his health. In mid-July, he wrote – apparently proudly – that he “broke his circle in a sumo fight”. The entry was decorated with a photo, where actually the participants in the event with the participation of a sumo fighter in a makeshift ring. He then added that he was experiencing “super back pain” after the event.
In another conversation the same day, he noted that he is “generally ready to fight[Mark Zuckerberg]but he may need surgery to re-strengthen the titanium plate holding his C5 and C6 vertebrae.”
