Fans are making quite a racket, so to speak, over tennis champion Andy Murray’s latest X-ray.

They’re not gagging because the Scottish athlete just underwent hip resurfacing surgery and now has a metal hip… but because his X-ray image appears to show off the ghastly outline of Murray’s penis resting against his left thigh.

Talk about a wild card!

The 31-year-old, who recently announced his retirement plans, apparently had no idea he was making an NSFW reveal Instagram on Tuesday, January 29. “I underwent a hip resurfacing surgery in London yesterday morning,” he wrote in the caption. “Feeling a bit battered and bruised just now but hopefully that will be the end of my hip pain. I now have a metal hip as you can see…”

Well, the metal hip isn’t all that followers saw. Just check out these responses on Twitter:

By the way, radiologists have a couple of slang terms for when penises point out an injury or an illness in a X-rays: “John Thomas sign” or “Throckmorton sign.” Murray’s penis is pointed away from his bad hip, but nevertheless, the John Thomas sign’s Wikipedia entry seems to have been recently edited recently to list “Murray’s mount” as an alternative name. Oh, Andy, the indignities!
