The opening ceremony of the 2022 World Cup has been one of the most anticipated events of the tournament, especially since FIFA and the organizers have kept many secrets about the artists who are going to perform. But it turns out they’re not short of celebrities, as Morgan Freeman made a surprise appearance.

After Shakira, Dua Lipa and Rod Stewart decided not to attend the event, mainly due to human rights concerns. However, BTS member Jung Kook has been confirmed to perform at the ceremony.

Freeman narrated the first part of the opening ceremony, titled “The Calling”, and it was the message that the World Cup was open to the world. However, many fans are wondering what happened to his hand. Here, check out the story.

What happened with Morgan Freeman’s hand?

Oscar winner Freeman appeared in the World Cup ceremony. First, fans were able to recognize his voice. The 85-year-old star spoke about the power of emotions and how they can connect the world.

Freeman paralyzed his left hand in a car crash in 2008 on a Mississippi highway, where his car flipped multiple times and he now wears a compression glove. He has admitted to experiencing pain as he suffers from fibromyalgia, a chronic widespread pain.

In the accident he also broke his shoulder. In 2011, he said that he “suffered nerve damage and it hasn’t gotten better. I can’t move it,” per the Daily Mail. He explained that “if you don’t move your hand, it will swell up. Do you know you move your hand about a million times a day?”
