Ronnie Coleman Back in the Hospital for Surgery on Herniated Disk in Neck

Ronnie Coleman is going back under the knife.

In another sad turn in the life of Ronnie Coleman, the eight-time Olympia champion finds himself back in the hospital to undergo surgery once again.

The man many consider to be the greatest bodybuilder of all time, Ronnie Coleman has suffered a tremendous amount of damage throughout his career, as documented in Ronnie Coleman: The King, which has resulted in a number of surgeries over the past several years. Now it appears that he’ll have to once again go under the knife in order to correct an injury suffered in a recent accident at home.


Ronnie Coleman broke the news in a recent Instagram post that once again saw the former Olympia champion in a familiar position: in a hospital bed.

Surrounded by friends and family, Ronnie Coleman hopes to recover from this recent mishap and get things back on track. But at this point it certainly looks like an uphill battle as he hopes to stay out of the hospital and return to normal.
