Elon Musk announced on his X platform (formerly known as Twitter) that he will undergo an MRI of his neck and upper back on Monday and may need surgery.
The 52-year-old, who is the CEO of Tesla Inc. and Space Exploration Technologies Corp., as well as the owner of a closely watched social media platform, has been dealing with back pain, which he mentioned previously could potentially require an operation to strengthen the titanium plate holding his C5 and C6 vertebrae together.
Musk’s health is closely watched, given his prominent role in various companies and his status as the world’s richest person. He has been known to work long hours and has suffered from back pain after engaging in a sumo wrestling match.
His proposed cage fight with Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founder of Meta Platforms Inc., has garnered attention and speculation, especially after the release of a rival social network, Threads, by Meta that competes directly with Musk’s X.
The competition and talk about the fight between Musk and Zuckerberg have been ongoing, with Zuckerberg suggesting Aug. 26 as a possible date for the match. However, confirmation is still pending, and Musk’s MRI results and potential need for surgery may impact the plans for the spectacle.
