A football fan took FIFA fever to new heights by watching a game while being operated on by doctors.
On social media, a photo of a man watching a FIFA World Cup 2022 match on a TV screen while doctors operate on him has gone viral.
The man was under spinal anaesthesia that numbs the body from the waist down while the patient remains awake.
The surgery was conducted at SP ZOZ MSWiA in Kielce, Poland.
“A man in Poland continued watching the World Cup even while having an operation under spinal anaesthesia,” the photo, posted by @notesfrompoland, was captioned.
“The picture was shared by the hospital treating him, SP ZOZ MSWiA in Kielce,” the caption added.
The man reportedly underwent surgery on his “lower regions” on November 25. The unnamed man reportedly asked the doctors if he could watch the match between Wales and Iran. The medics allowed him to watch the match on a TV placed in one corner of the operation theatre.
