Sir Tom Jones reveals very unusual health treatment after struggling to stand up

Sir Tom Jones has had a mega career over six decades - and it doesn't look like the Welsh crooner will be stopping any time soon despite health struggles in recent years. The 83-year-old is currently thrilling fans on his sold-out Ages and Stages World Tour.

And he will be celebrated on BBC Two tonight as many of his performances are being shown across hours of content. Sir Tom has faced health challenges over the years, including a double hip replacement.

The Voice judge previously revealed he could only stand for 'about four songs' before needing to sit down before his most recent surgery in 2022. He had spoken of being in pain before his first surgery in 2017 when a scan revealed that the cartilage in his left hip had "gone".

Sir Tom said he was 'bone on bone', but later revealed that the surgery had gone well and he was looking forward to getting back to work. As well as his surgery, Sir Tom previously revealed that he has an unusual health regime to keep him in good physical condition.

Sir Tom shared three years ago that he takes care of his well-being by hanging upside down like a bat. He previously discussed this method known as "inversion therapy" in an interview, which uses a special frame so people can turn upside down.

He told The Sun in 2021 about this preventative measure, saying: "In 2030 I am going to be 90 years old. I hang upside down. You know on one of those frames. "It's great. You put your feet in the thing and you flip and you hang."

Last year, Sir Tom revealed he had no plans to stop performing any time soon. He said he would only stop if his voice starts to deteriorate.
