This is what The Mountain from Game of Thrones looked like before he got absolutely huge (Pics)

Game of Thrones star Hafthor Julius Bjornsson is one of the strongest men on the planet.

The 6ft 9in monster, who plays bloodthirsty behemoth Gregor Clegane in the TV series, is five-time Iceland strongest man, has two-time Europe's Strongest Man and has finished in the top three in the world

The real-life giant weighs in at 400lbs (180kg) and has a deadlift of more than 400kg.


When he's not sparring Conor McGregor or crushing watermelons with his bare hands, he's breaking strength records for fun.

He might be one of the biggest men we've ever clapped eyes on now, but it hasn't always been that way.

This is a photo of 'Thor' long before he was lifting Atlas stones for fun and generally being a big strong b*stard, back when he was playing basketball in Iceland as a regular 6ft 9in lad...
