This led him to develop the rare Madelung disease, which caused him to accumulates large fatty deposits round his neck.

The 53-year-old’s throat had swell to over six inches wide and about five and a half inches in length.

Hong has now undergone three surgeries to remove the fatty deposits, and is said to be recovering.
