Sir Rod Stewart has joked is planning to have an operation to enlarge his penis, following the success of his recent ankle surgery.

The 75-year-old rocker recently underwent an £8,000 surgical procedure to fuse his ankle, which doctors said will make him taller as it will straighten the bones in his lower legs.

Sir Rod told Virgin Radio’s Chris Evans: “My knee got fixed with a knee replacement, so then the ankle didn’t know what was going on because obviously it’s crooked because of the knees, so now I’ve had to have the angle done.

“So when this is all done, I should have a nice straight leg and be able to run – and then I’m going to get my nob done.”

Asked what needs fixing in that department, he said: “Mind your own business!”

The I Don’t Want To Talk About It singer underwent knee replacement surgery earlier this year to treat an injury he blamed on years of playing football on dry pitches in the US.

He said: “First of all it was my knee as I played football all my life. I am suffering for it now. My knee got fixed with a replacement and then the ankle did not know what was going on.

"My leg has been caused by playing on awful pitches in Los Angeles. They are bone dry.”

Sir Rod – a devoted Celtic football fan – was discharged from hospital on his 75th birthday back in January after knee replacement surgery.

The rocker’s youngest children with current wife Penny Lancaster are sons Alastair, 14, and Aiden, nine, and the singer recently revealed he has his own football pitch at home.

Sir Rod was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2017 and in September 2019 revealed he had been given the all-clear after undergoing treatment.

He said: "If you're positive, and you work through it and you keep a smile on your face… I've worked for two years and I've just been happy, and the good Lord looked after me."
