The 60-year-old male went to Penang Hospital in Malaysia, after his own attempts at removing the round disc failed.

However, nurses were forced to call the fire department to assist in the removal of the object.

A Fire and Rescue Department spokesman said a team went to the hospital with a special drill to make the extraction.

They told The Star online: ''It took us about 30 minutes to complete the task.''

However, the spokesperson did not reveal how the ring came to be stuck on the man's genitals in the first place.
