LONDON (GBR): World and Olympic winner in long jump Greg Rutherford underwent a surgery to fix a hernia problem on Thursday. He said on twitter that he was going 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. Afterwards he said: "Looking forward to getting rehab started and turning my wobbly body back into an athletes body. I'm a new man. Thanks for the kind messages. Hopefully the surgery has fixed an issue I've been dealing with since 2012 (which worsened this year)."
