Greg Rutherford undergoes hernia operation

British long jumper Greg Rutherford has undergone surgery to fix a hernia problem on Thursday.

The 2012 Olympic gold medallist, who won bronze at last year’s Rio Games, missed this summer’s World Championships in London with an ankle injury.

However, the 30-year-old announced on Twitter that he was going under the knife to fix another problem following the end of the season, with a picture of him on a hospital bed.

“Heading down to have my groin chopped up and then reconstructed soon. They just need me to get changed… Have a tasty hernia that needs sorting out. Can’t wait,” Rutherford said.
