Recently discovered medical records have shown that Adolf Hitler likely did only have “one ball”.

It seems the old song was right after all.

Recently discovered medical records have shown that Adolf Hitler likely did only have “one ball”.

Professor Peter Fleischmann, of Erlangen-Nuremberg University in Germany, believes the dictator suffered from an undescended testicle.

“The testicle was probably stunted,” Prof Fleischman said, reported Mirror Online.

In 1923, Hitler was arrested following the failure of his first attempt to seize power in the Munich Beer Hall Putsch.

And records of an examination by a prison doctor appear to confirm that Hitler did actually only have one ball.

Notes by Dr Josef Steiner Brin, the prison’s medical officer, record “Adolf Hitler, artist, recently writer” as “healthy and strong” but suffering from “right-side cryptorchidism”.

Cryptorchidism is when the testicle fails to descend properly.

An autopsy carried out on Hitler’s corpse also found that one testicle was completely missing – but it was recorded that the left testicle was absent.

The records of the examination were believed lost, but were discovered at an auction in 2010 and have only now been properly studied.

For decades it was alleged that Hitler had lost a testicle at the battle of the Somme during the First World War.

The song “Hitler has only got one ball” is believed to have been written by the British Council as they created anti-Nazi propaganda.
