Is the story true that a 26-year old Welsh rugby fan did actually mutilate himself by cutting his testicles off after the England Wales match? I know it's all over the meejya but did it really happen? Here's one report of the incident:
A Welsh rugby fan cut off his own testicles to celebrate Wales beating world champions England at rugby in Cardiff for the first time in 12 years, newspapers reported on Tuesday.
Geoff Huish, 26, told drinkers at a social club: "If Wales win I'll cut my balls off," the Daily Mirror and The Sun reported.
Friends at the club in Caerphilly, south Wales, thought he was joking.
But after Saturday's Six Nations match which Wales won 11-9 when Gavin Henson kicked a 45-metre penalty, Huish went home and reportedly cut off his testicles with a knife.
He then walked 200 metres back with the testicles to show the shocked drinkers what he had done.
Huish was taken to hospital where he remained in a seriously ill condition, the papers said.
