CRICKET legend Freddie Flintoff went to see the doctor after his willy went numb on a marathon charity bike ride.
The Top Gear host, 42, said he lost all feeling in his todger three days into the trip from Athens to London.
A few days on, fearful Freddie saw the medic travelling with him and rugby’s Lawrence Dallaglio as he was still frozen down below.
He said: “It just suddenly went numb, as if I’d trapped it in a door. It was like a dead fish.
“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.”
In his new book, Right, Said Fred, Flintoff also admitted he gets embarrassed cycling in Lycra because it “doesn’t leave a lot to the imagination”.
The former England captain and Lancs hero — real name Andrew — said: “I feel like I’m exposing myself. Nobody needs to see that.”
He and retired Dallaglio, 48, a fellow England captain, raised £2million on the 2,872-mile Cycle Slam back in 2012.
Dallaglio organised the ride, which took them 26 days.
