Kevin Hart found himself temporarily unable to walk after a friendly race against a former American football player.
The comedian revealed in an Instagram video on Wednesday (23Aug23) that he will be in a wheelchair for the next six to eight weeks due to tearing his lower abdomen and hip abductor muscles while sprinting from 36 meters against Stevan Ridley.
