Freddie Flintoff recalls visiting a doctor after his penis turned numb during a charity bike ride.

Top Gear presenter Freddie Flintoff has revealed that he was forced to visit a doctor after losing all sensation in his penis during a charity bike ride.

The 42-year-old was three days into the cycle from Athens to London with friend Lawrence Dallaglio when he was hit by the sudden loss of feeling.

"It just suddenly went numb, as if I'd trapped it in a door. It was like a dead fish," he recalled in his new autobiography, Right, Said Fred.

"I said to the medic, 'Doc, I'm afraid you're going to have to have a look at my old fella, I can't feel it'.

"He took a look and was quite blasé, 'Oh, that's quite common in cyclists.'

"I was quite taken aback. Apparently, it was to do with something called the penile nerve.

"The old fella only started to resurrect itself about three days after I arrived in London."

Flintoff's new book is out now.
